Book CoverBooks

1). Vygotsky's Psychology-Philosophy: A Metaphor for Language Theory and Learning (2001) Dorothy Robbins

COGNITION AND LANGUAGE: A SERIES IN PSYCHOLINGUISTICS (see below for a list of recent volumes in the series)

This book 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 and grammar.

Special Note: List of major corrections related to Vygotsky’s psychology-philosophy: A metaphor for language theory and learning:

  1. Page ix, line 7: should read, “This approach is not a model, nor a method.”
  2. Page 12: should read, “H. Establishing Adult Theories from Child Psychology.”
  3. Page 72, line 11 from the bottom: “This construct raises Vygotskian dialectics to a much higher and more practical level….”
  4. Page 84, line 11: Misspelling of the word Vygotskian.
  5. Page 106, line 25: “…Whorf claiming that language is priviledged over thought, and so forth.
  6. Page 124, line 8 from the bottom: “…in Vygotsky to stop analyzing and dissecting every word…”
