The modern world has been increasingly using cutting-edge information technologies based on visual information coding. Their implementation makes the cognition of a visual thinking one of the relevant areas of the modern psychological science.

It is worth noting that visual thinking takes an important place in intellectual and creative development of an individual and is the least studied cognitive process in modern psychology science. The study of mechanisms of formation of a visual thinking image (image-concept) as a form of visual thinking as well as the search for and development of effective means of development of the latter are more promising in this sense. [...]

Despite a number of existing visual thinking studies in psychological science, the indicated problem cognition is significantly complicated by insufficient development of conceptual approaches that would allow to constructively research the mechanisms and specifics of the mentioned type of reasoning.

The main reason for such situation is, firstly, the absence of a clear theoretical and methodological background of this phenomenon; secondly, the ambiguity of approaches to the interpretation of the “visual thinking” concept; thirdly, the complexity of experimental research study of visual thinking mechanisms through their integration and substitution by other cognitive processes; fourthly, the absence of valid and reliable methods of their study. For a long time, the visual thinking issue has been a “blind spot” in psychological science. Although, considering its relevance and importance, there have been attempts to investigate the area. But they are mostly the studies of “thinking images”, “spatial images”, or visible images (perceptual; visual – active thinking; and visual – figurative thinking). We can consider them as specific steps to solve the problem of visual thinking.

The scientific research presented in this monograph consists in defining the methodological basis for visual thinking activity study; developing a strategically semantic approach to this activity understanding. The basic provisions of this approach lie in the fact that the general “world picture”, inherent to a certain society, and a person’s “world image”, which is formed in the process of desobjectivation of such “world picture” and objectification of the world, are the main factors of the visual thinking development. These factors determine the visual thinking strategies, which are individual mechanisms of a image-concept formation.
