The innovative theories of Lev Vygotsky on thought and speech have become increasingly popular over the last decade. An Introduction to Vygotsky provides students with an accessible overview of his work by combining reprints of key journal and text articles with editorial commentary and suggested further reading. Students will find this a useful single source of information covering material that is often difficult to access in college libraries.
These readings will help researchers and scholars already familiar with Vygotsky’s work to place Vygotsky’s theory and related interpretations and debates in their historical and cultural contexts.
