About the book
Lev Vygotsky, known as the “Mozart of Psychology”, was one of the most influential psychologists from Soviet Russia. Vygotsky’s genius swept a wide range of problems in psychology and education in his brilliant but short career. Vygotsky provided deep and unique insights to a variety of problems in both pedagogy and psychology. His theories have influenced a variety of fields and given a socio-cultural lens to researchers. This book traces the thought process of building of his system of psychology: the ideas and authors who influenced him along with newly formed Soviet society on his work and worldview. Each of the chapters thematically discusses various dimensions of his wide ranging work and is a scientific biographical overview of his life and work.
The book was translated from Russian by Sergei Syrovatkin was published in 1989 by Progress Publishers.
This is a completely electronic version typeset using LaTeX from a 1989 scan. The original scan though readable was in pretty low resolution. I am pretty happy with the design and typesetting of the book and hope that this would be useful version for future pedagogues and psychologists.
