Psychology-Philosophy: A Metaphor for Language Theory
and Learning (2001) Dorothy Robbins
AND LANGUAGE: A SERIES IN PSYCHOLINGUISTICS (see
below for a list of recent volumes in the series)
is an introduction to Vygotsky and his theories of language
and second language acquisition. Employing a dual framework
of metatheory and metaphor, the author focuses on Vygotsky's
cultural-historical perspective (contrasted with the sociocultural
heritage more prevalent in the West) and its emphasis on history
as change and thought as related to action. Included also
is a comparison of Vygotskyan and Chomskyan theories of language
