The Implications of Luria’s Theories for Cross-cultural Research on Language and Intelligence

  • Josef Schubert

Abstract

The work of A. R. Luria (1960, 1961b, 1963a) on the development of the second signal system combines a biological approach to the study of human behavior with an analysis of the social conditions determining its development. The biological approach is represented by Luria’s research about the stages of development of verbal regulation of behavior. It is complemented by the principle that the content of the second signal system as well as the modes of verbal regulation of behavior are developed through social interaction.
