Vygotsky's Psychology-Philosophy
A Metaphor for Language Theory and Learning
by Dorothy Robbins
Central Missouri State University, Warrenburg, USA, and International
Vygotsky Society, Moscow, Russia

COGNITION AND LANGUAGE: A SERIES IN PSYCHOLINGUISTICS 

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.
