Thought and language by L. S Vygotskiĭ( Book )

76 editions published between 1977 and 2013 in 4 languages and held by 2,150 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Lev Vygotsky's Thought and Language has become recognized as a classic foundational work of cognitive science. Its 1962 English translation must certainly be considered one of the most important and influential books ever published by the MIT Press. In this highly original exploration of human mental development, Vygotsky analyzes the relationship between words and consciousness, arguing that speech is social in its origins and that only as children develop does it become internalized verbal thought. In 1986, the MIT Press published a new edition of the original translation by Eugenia Hanfmann and Gertrude Vakar, edited by Vygotsky scholar Alex Kozulin, that restored the work's complete text and added materials to help readers better understand Vygotsky's thought. Kozulin also contributed an introductory essay that offered new insight into Vygotsky's life, intellectual milieu, and research methods. from (March 4, 2016)
Rigorous mathematical thinking : conceptual formation in the mathematics classroom by James T Kinard( )

14 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 1,263 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book demonstrates how rigorous mathematical thinking can be fostered through the development of students' cognitive tools and operations. Though this approach can be applied in any classroom, it seems to be particularly effective with socially disadvantaged and culturally different students. The authors argue that children's cognitive functions cannot be viewed as following a natural maturational path: They should be actively constructed during the educational process. The Rigorous Mathematical Thinking (RMT) model is based on two major theoretical approaches that allow such an active construction of cognitive functions: Vygotsky's theory of psychological tools and Feuerstein's concept of mediated learning experience. The application of the RMT model in various urban classrooms demonstrates how mathematics education standards can be reached even by students with a history of educational failure who were considered hopeless underachievers."--BOOK JACKET
Vygotsky's psychology : a biography of ideas by Alex Kozulin( Book )

35 editions published between 1990 and 2001 in 3 languages and held by 897 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Alex Kozulin, translator of Vygotsky's work and distinguished Russian-American psychologist, has written the first major intellectual biography about Vygotsky's theories and their relationship to twentieth-century Russian and Western intellectual culture. He traces Vygotsky's ideas to their origins in his early essays on literary criticism, Jewish culture, and the psychology of art, and he explicates brilliantly his psychological theory of language, thought, and development. Kozulin's biography of Vygotsky also reflects many of the conflicts of twentieth-century psychology--from the early battles between introspectionists and reflexologists to the current argument concerning the cultural and social, rather than natural, construction of the human mind. Vygotsky was a contemporary of Freud and Piaget, and his tragically early death and the Stalinist suppression of his work ensured that his ideas did not have an immediate effect on Western psychology. But the last two decades have seen his psychology become highly influential while that of other theoretical giants has faded. --from back cover
Psychology in Utopia : toward a social history of Soviet psychology by Alex Kozulin( Book )

14 editions published in 1984 in English and held by 595 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

What function can a science of psychology serve in a utopian society whose ideological foundations already contain a theory of human nature? This is the question that has dominated the history of Soviet psychology - a history that Alex Kozulin decodes in this book. Following an introduction that discusses the problems of deciphering the real content of scientific work produced in an ideological context, the author reviews the work and the fate of the first four generations of Soviet psychologists: those who came of age before the Revolution, during the heady days of the 1920s, in the midst of the Stalin era, and the most recent, contemporary generation. Six case studies provide a better understanding of the ideas and methods of Soviet psychology: the careers of Ivan Pavlov and Vladimir Bekhterev; the roots of non-Pavlovian psychophysiology in the work of Nikolai Bernstein; the ups and downs of the concept of the unconscious; the origins of Lev Vygotsky's epistemological theories; Pavel Blonsky and the development of Soviet educational psychology; and the effects of de-Stalinization in educational psychology and other areas. Alex Kozulin studied medical psychology and psychophysiology at the Moscow Institute of Medicine where he received a medical degree; he received his doctorate at the Moscow Institute of Psychology. Kozulin emigrated in 1979 and has since worked as research associate at Boston University's Center for the Philosophy and History of Science and taught history of psychology at Ben-Gurion University in Israel
Psychological tools : a sociocultural approach to education by Alex Kozulin( Book )

19 editions published between 1998 and 2007 in English and Chinese and held by 477 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The concept of "psychological tools" is a cornerstone of L.S. Vygotsky's sociocultural theory of cognitive development. Psychological tools are the symbolic cultural artifacts - signs, symbols, texts, formulae, and most fundamentally, language - that enable us to master psychological functions like memory, perception, and attention in ways appropriate to our cultures. In this lucid book, Alex Kozulin argues that the concept offers a useful way to analyze cross-cultural differences in thought and to develop practical strategies for educating immigrant children from widely different cultures

Vygotski et l'éducation apprentissages, développement et contextes culturels( Book )

5 editions published between 2009 and 2018 in French and held by 80 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Cet ouvrage, rédigé par les meilleurs spécialistes internationaux, entend faire le point sur les principaux concepts développés par Vygotski sur l'apprentissage et l'enseignement. Comment interpréter les concepts de médiation ou de zone de développement proximal? Comment les penser et les mettre en œuvre dans une visée d'évaluation dynamique? Quelles conséquences tirer en matière d'éducation et d'enseignement des élaborations vygotskiennes concernant la littératie ou les concepts scientifiques? Quels processus médiateurs convient-il d'étudier pour mieux connaître, voire pour transformer, les relations entre origine sociale - ou milieux socio-économiques - et socialisation cognitive et apprentissages? Telles sont quelques unes des questions auxquelles les auteurs de cet ouvrage s'efforcent de confronter les apports de l'œuvre de Vygotski à des travaux scientifiques récents portant sur les enjeux sociaux et éducatifs majeurs (4e de couverture)

Vygotskian Tradition in the Psychological Study of Handicapped, Particularly Deaf Children by Jane Knox( Book )

3 editions published between 1900 and 1987 in English and Undetermined and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The paper reviews theories of Lev Vygotsky, founder of the Soviet school of cognitive developmental psychology and an architect of Soviet defectology, the discipline concerned with physically and mentally handicapped children. Three of his basic concepts are explained: (1) "cultural" versus "natural" mental functions; (2) material and symbolic tools; and (3) the dialogical character of learning. Implications of his theories for deaf education are considered, including his conclusion that polyglossia--the acquisition of speech by various verbal means--is the unique feature of the deaf child's development and the most productive path to the child's intellectual growth. Current practice in deaf education in the Soviet Union is modeled on Vygotsky's principles and those of his students and his collaborator, A. Luria. The evolution of Vygotsky's thinking concerning sign language is discussed. (Cl)
