Book Information

   

Title: Vygotsky's psycho-semiotics
Subtitle: Theories, instrument and interpretive analyses
Written By: Charlotte Hua Liu
Description:

Reviewing and elaborating L. S. Vygotsky's view of language mediated
development, this work presents an extension of the Russian thinker's
developmental psycho-semiotics to an educational psycho-semiotics.
Interpreting original discussions of tool-mediation as developmental
mechanism, this book addresses the question of what occurs in the
interpersonal environment that enables the internalisation of tool and the
development of thinking. Filling in a gap in Vygotsky's theoretical framework,
it discusses in detail inter-psychological processes as the social origins of
changes in the intra-psychological domain.

Besides theoretical descriptions, this book also offers an original instrument
for educational research or practitioners' reflection of micro-genetic processes
of interaction and change. This instrument is then applied in interpretive
analyses of real-life classroom exchanges.

Contents: Psychological semiotics - Vygotsky - Language and thinking -
Language as psychological symbols - Mediated development - Theoretical
framework - Interpretive instrument - Interpretive analyses.
