Overview

Lev Vygotsky provided the twentieth century with an enticing mix of intellectual traditions within an attempt to provide an account of the social formation of the mind. His legacy is an exciting, but at times chaotic fusion of ideas. An Introduction to Vygotsky, Second Edition provides students with an accessible overview of his work, combining reprints of key journal and text articles with editorial commentary and helpful suggestions for further reading.

Harry Daniels considers the evolution of Vygotsky's work against a backdrop of political turmoil in the developing USSR. Major elements discussed include the use of the "culture" concept in social development theory and the implications of Vygotsky's theories for teaching, learning and assessment.

This second edition is revised and up-dated to provide a refreshing introduction to Vygotsky's work and the multi-disciplinary contribution he has made to twentieth century intellectual life. Academics and students at all levels will find this an essential key source of information.
