The current manuscript of Zaporozhets A.V. had been prepared for the All-Union conference on psychology dated in 1970s. Being one of the founders of cultural-activity psychology and action psychology he considered the problem of studying emotions within the context of activity. Apart from outlining new lines of emotions research he summarized results of the studies conducted at the Research Institute of Preschool Education of the USSR Academy and the laboratory of emotional development in children. According to Zaporozhets, development of specifically human emotions in children depends on their subject operation by means of interiorization. This determines both content and structural features of emotions to develop. He also described the neurophysiological mechanisms following the shift of emotion in personality structure. The current paper also mentions the context for the Zaporozhets’ manuscript preparation as well as brief description of its content.

Keywords: activity, emotion, emotional imagination, internal activities, emotional anticipation, A.V. Zaporozhets
