This Luria Festschrift is dedicated to the life and legacy of A R Luria, celebrating the centennial anniversary of his birth (1902-2002). The volume represents a group of authors, most of whom either studied or collaborated with Alexander Romanovich. The articles, which were selected by Russians, have also been written by Russians, with the inclusion of international authors. This volume is unique in that readers have the opportunity of discovering a Russian approach in understanding and implementing Luria's theories. The contents of this book are divided into five sections: The first section, Cherishing the Memory of A R Luria, presents a collection of personal experiences the authors had with Luria, offering the reader a picture of the different sides of his personality. The second section, A R Luria and the Historical-Cultural Approach in Psychology, focuses on Luria's overall cultural-historical approach, also connected with remembrances of Alexander Romanovich. The third section, Luria's School of Neuropsychology, presents a collection of articles by authors who use Luria's neuropsychology (brain-behavior relationships), as well as directions developed after Luria's death, such as ageing and dementia, neuropsychology of psychiatry, etc. The fourth section, Luria's Approach in Developmental Neuropsychology, introduces the reader to the process of assessment and remediation with children in Russia. The fifth section Lurian Neuropsychological Assessment and its Development focuses on the implementation of the Lurian approach to the practice of diagnostics in different social-cultural conditions and on possibilities of quantitative evaluation of Lurian neuropsychological assessment data.
