Vygotsky in 21st Century Society brings together an ensemble of novel perspectives about the legacy of Lev Vygotsky and Alexander Luria. The book illustrates how cultural historical theory has been constructed and re-constructed and how well the legacy of this work is being applied and continued in contemporary research.
This volume is meant to inform a broader discussion of how a developmentally-oriented cultural paradigm can guide learning and teaching in social and educational policy and in group or individual counseling. Readers will find discussions of issues in human development that have, on the whole, been overlooked. However, it is important and timely to address these issues and fault-lines, particularly for advancing both equity and scientific understandings.
