From the Schedrovitsky Foundation:
Georgy Schedrovitsky (1929–1994) was a philosopher and methodologist, social and cultural activist. He created a scientific school and founded the Moscow Methodological Circle which he headed for forty years. Schedrovitsky’s range of scientific interests was unusually wide covering philosophy, pedagogy, logic, psychology, sociology, linguistics and methodology of science among others.
The research carried out by Schedrovitsky and his followers found its practical realization in organizational activity games—an entirely new instrument for analysis and development of any mental activity systems (organizations, programs, projects, etc.)
