Колпакова М. Ю., Коган И. М. К вопросу о природе внутреннего диалога // Вестник ПСТГУ. Серия IV: Педагогика. Психология. 2014. Вып. 1 (32). С. 97-107. DOI: 10.15382/sturIV201432.97-107
The article provides a rationale for research on inner dialogue as a contributing factor in the development of personality and psychical disease. In this context, dialogue doesn't only mean conversation or communication between alternative and often opposite narrative voices, decentralized multiplicity of I positions, but inner dialogue between self and spiritual inner self, the moral core of a person. T. Florenskaya emphasized the spiritual essence of dialogue. This notion (might seem unusual, but in fact it) has deep roots in Russian (A. Ukhtomsky, M. Bakhtin, P. Florensky, S. Frank, T. Florenskaya, S. Averintsev) philosophy and psychology. Based on the example of characters by F. M. Dostoevsky it is shown that a specifi c form of internal dialogue is associated with psychological distress. The article argues that inner dialogue between self and spiritual self is necessary for mental health.

In the article the action of different words on an person is described. Using the example of characters from Dostoevsky's “Demons” and “The Brothers Karamazov” the curative and destructive action of a word and an anti-word are shown. The main criterion for differentiating words is outlined which is based on the motivation: the reason they are said for. The destructive action of anti-words is based on the motive of self-assertion. The consequences of such words being impressed are shown. Conversely, the curative word is based on the welfare of others: the support of conscience as the main spiritual strength being able to heal a person from its mental illnesses. The psychological essence of idle talk and its negative impact on the personality are exposed. Different types of words as treated by M. Bakhtin are described (words with a loophole, having a hidden attitude towards being recognized by others; words which don't have a vivid, personal mood, including a special profound word able to cure and strengthen a person).
