In this volume, readers are introduced to Vygotsky's argument for a theoretical and methodological approach to differentiate "higher" mental functions from the more basic brain processes that other theorists believed were at the center of the psychological apparatus.

"All academic libraries, even those in two-year colleges, should add these volumes to their collections." (Choice, February 1998) "The Collected Works in English are particularly valuable because a broad and honest reading of Vygotsky challenges common assumptions about psychology. By building on Vygotsky's more promising insights, psychology might have a better chance of overcoming the divisions it still faces." (American Scientist, May - June 1998)
