About this product
- DescriptionUntil quite recently, Vygotskya s work was kwn only to a small circle of Western psychologists, but he has rapidly emerged as one of the major theorists of the twentieth century. This new volume aims to provide students and scholars alike with a lively introduction to Vygotskya s work based on authoritative translations of the original sources. The volume covers the various areas in which Vygotsky worked, including education, psychology, paedology, psychiatry and defectology. Papers have been selected to give a representative overview of Vygotskya s multifaceted work during difficult periods. The volume also highlights little--kwn facets of his work, such as his anti--fascist and pro--socialist writings and provides the reader with a number of pieces that appear in English for the first time. The editors provide a brief introduction and tes for each translation to facilitate reading and place each piece in its historical context. As the volume requires preparatory reading it can be used both as an introduction to the key ideas in Vygotskya s work, and as a companion to the theoretical and historical analysis presented in van der Veer and Vlasinera s Understanding Vygotsky.
