After the Soviet revolution (1917), the application of the Marxism to the task of building a new society determined the existence of the Soviet psychology, a clearly differentiated tradition and with own personality. The Marxism-Leninism was imposed as ideological mark in which all scientific tentative should necessarily be based. In the years twenty the psychology should be materialistic and starting from the thirty it should also be dialectical. The Soviet psychology was presented this way like a philosophical partisan, committed science and socially with a Marxism-Leninist vision of the society that adopted a dialectical materialistic perspective. In this work we will analyze the fundamental positions of the dialectical materialism as well as their influence in the psychology, which was determined for the changes of the power (you purge, prohibitions, impositions...) that constantly interfered in the life of the science in way unpredictable.

Key words:

dialectical materialism, historical materialism, Soviet psychology, partner-historical school
