The transformation of learning : advances in cultural-historical activity theory by B. van Oers( )

5 editions published between 2008 and 2010 in English and held by 840 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Transformation of Learning gives an overview of some significant advances of the cultural-historical activity theory, also known as CHAT in the educational domain. Developments are described with respect to the theoretical framework, as well as with respect to research. The book's main focus is on the evolution of the learning concept and school practices under the influence of cultural-historical activity theory. Activity theory has contributed to this transformation of the current views on learning, both conceptually and practically. It has provided us with a useful new approach to the understanding of learning in cultural contexts
Lev Vygotsky by René van der Veer( )

16 editions published between 2007 and 2014 in English and held by 818 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Lev Vygotsky, the great Russian psychologist, had a profound influence on educational thought. His work on the perception of art, cultural-historical theory of the mind and the zone of proximal development all had an impact on modern education. This text provides a succinct critical account of Vygotsky's life and work against the background of the political events and social turmoil of that time and analyses his cross-cultural research and the application of his ideas to contemporary education
The Vygotsky reader by L. S Vygotskiĭ( Book )

17 editions published between 1994 and 1998 in English and German and held by 531 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This 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 Vygotsky's multifaceted work during difficult periods. The volume also highlights little-known 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 notes for each translation to facilitate reading and place each piece in its historical context. As the volume requires no preparatory reading it can be used both as an introduction to the key ideas in Vygotsky's work, and as a companion to the theoretical and historical analysis presented in van der Veer and Vlasiner's Understanding Vygotsky
The social mind : construction of the idea by Jaan Valsiner( Book )

10 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 462 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In their analysis of the social construction of mind, Jaan Valsiner and Rene van der Veer elaborate on their notion of intellectual interdependency in the development of scientific ideas and the role of such interdependency in the history of the social sciences."--Jacket
Understanding Vygotsky : a quest for synthesis by René van der Veer( Book )

22 editions published between 1991 and 1994 in English and Undetermined and held by 461 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book presents the most comprehensive introduction to the life and ideas of Lev Vygotsky (1896-1934) yet written. As a key to understanding one of the most potent influences on developmental theories this century, van der Veer and Valsiner explore Vygotsky's ideas in the contexts of Russian psychology and the politics of the interwar years. The authors chart Vygotsky's intellectual development through the course of his life, establishing links with his predecessors and contemporaries and illustrating his intellectual interdependence with the contemporary scientific community and the creative endeavours of the fine arts. Careful analysis of his social context allows detailed discussions of Vygotsky's indebtedness to literary scholarship (his career began with an essay on Hamlet), with psychoanalysis, Gestalt psychology and paedology." "Understanding Vygotsky not only shows the extent to which Vygotsky's work can be further developed to be relevant to the end of the twentieth century but also opens up scope for a more detailed analysis of his contemporaries. It will be essential reading for all students of Vygotsky and his ideas. Book jacket."--Jacket

The Cambridge handbook of cultural-historical psychology( Book )

16 editions published between 2014 and 2017 in English and Dutch and held by 250 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The field of cultural-historical psychology originated in the work of Lev Vygotsky and the Vygotsky Circle in the Soviet Union more than eighty years ago, and has now established a powerful research tradition in Russia and the West. 'The Cambridge handbook of cultural-historical psychology' is the first volume to systematically present cultural-historical psychology as an integrative/holistic developmental science of mind, brain and culture. Its main focus is the inseparable unity of the historically evolving human mind, brain and culture, and the ways to understand it. The contributors are major international experts in the field, and include authors of major works on Lev Vygotsky, direct collaborators and associates of Alexander Luria, and renowned neurologist, Oliver Sacks. The handbook will be of interest to students and scholars in the fields of psychology, education, humanities and neuroscience
Revisionist revolution in Vygotsky studies by Anton Yasnitsky( Book )

13 editions published between 2015 and 2016 in English and held by 225 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Revisionist Revolution in Vygotsky Studies brings together recent critical investigations which examine historical and textual inaccuracies associated with received understandings of Vygotsky’s work. By deconstructing the Vygotskian narrative, the authors debunk the 'cult of Vygotsky', allowing for a new, exciting interpretation of the logic and direction of his theory. The chapters cover a number of important themes, including: The chronology of Vygotsky’s ideas and theory development, and the main core of his theoretical writings; Relationships between Vygotskians and their Western colleagues; The international reception of Vygotskian psychology and problems of translation; The future development of Vygotskian science. Using Vygotsky’s published and unpublished writings the authors present a detailed historical understanding of Vygotsky’s thought, and the circumstances in which he worked. This volume is the first to provide an overview of revisionist studies of Vygotsky’s work, and is the product of close international collaboration between revisionist scholars. It will be an essential contribution to Vygotskian scholarship, and of great interest to researchers in the history of psychology, history of science, Soviet/Russian history, philosophical psychology and philosophy of science."--Publisher's description
Vygotsky's notebooks : a selection by L. S Vygotskiĭ( )

14 editions published between 2017 and 2018 in English and held by 196 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book consists of previously unpublished manuscripts by Vygotsky found in the first systematic study of Vygotsky's family archive. The notebooks and scientific diaries gathered in this volume represent all periods of Vygotsky's scientific life, beginning with the earliest manuscript, entitled The tragicomedy of strivings (1912), and ending with his last note, entitled Pro domo sua (1934), written shortly before his death. The notes reveal unknown aspects of the eminent psychologist's personality, show his aspirations and interests, and allow us to gain insights into the development of his thinking and its internal dynamics. Several texts reflect the plans that Vygotsky was unable to realize during his lifetime, such as the creation of a theory of emotions and a theory of consciousness, others reveal Vygotsky's involvement in activities that were previously unknown, and still others provide outlines of papers and lectures. The notes are presented in chronological order, preceded by brief introductions and accompanied by an extensive set of notes. The result is a book that allows us to obtain a much deeper understanding of Vygotsky's innovative ideas.

Vygotsky's pedology of the school age by L. S Vygotskiĭ( )

3 editions published in 2020 in English and held by 92 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This is an edited (introduced and annotated) book by the Russian psychologist Lev Vygotsky who belongs to the most well-known social scientists of the previous century and whose body of writings still serves as a source of inspiration for present-day researchers in psychology, education, linguistics, and so on. The book had not been translated into any language and was virtually unknown to the scientific community, because it is extremely hard to find a copy of the original. The book will cause excitement among those familiar with Vygotsky's writings, because it deals with an aspect of his life and work that is little known, notably his involvement with child studies or, as it is also known, pedology (paidology, paedology). Child studies was a new discipline launched by the American G. Stanley Hall which aimed to offer a comprehensive study of the child including psychological, educational, medical, and social aspects. The discipline enjoyed a brief popularity in the US and Europe until WW 1 and continued its existence in the USSR until 1936 when it was forbidden. The book gives a unique insight into Russian and Soviet pedology and will be interesting to anyone interested in developmental and general psychology, education, and the social history of these disciplines. As the book requires virtually no previous knowledge it can be read with profit by both undergraduate and graduate students and professors. An additional asset for those specifically interested in Vygotsky's theorizing is that it shows a whole new light on the social-historical and political background of his ideas. The book is introduced by an essay that explains the historical embeddedness of Vygotsky's ideas and the footnotes and list of brief biographies of key figures make it particularly easy to understand the book's content and context"--

Lev Vygotsky by René van der Veer( Book )

1 edition published in 2014 in English and held by 33 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Lev Vygotsky, the great Russian psychologist, had a profound influence on educational thought. His work on the perception of art, cultural-historical theory of the mind and the zone of proximal development all had an impact on modern education. This text provides a succinct critical account of Vygotsky's life and work against the background of the political events and social turmoil of that time and analyses his cross-cultural research and the application of his ideas to contemporary education. René van der Veer offers his own interpretation of Vygotsky as both the man and anti-man of educational philosophy, concluding that the strength of Vygotsky's legacy lies in its unfinished, open nature."--
