The problem of cultural-historical typology is one of the most intriguing issues at the crossroads of psychology and cultural theory. This paper presents a preliminary sketch of the four-level-cognitive-development theory to look at this issue from a new perspective. According to the model suggested, three cultural types are marked out: prehistoric and hunter-gatherer culture, early theoretical culture, and modern industrial culture.
