Paper in a Symposium (Symp)
10:42 AM, Friday 1 Sep 2017 (36 minutes)
Those of us who have followed the course of Vygotsky’s cultural-historical psychology, its revivals, its controversies, its multiple readings, and its struggles toward a meaningful Marxist interpretation can appreciate its impressive achievements in education and pedagogics. The goal of education, according to Vygotsky is to create a new type of human individuals, who are creative, inventive and discoverers and capable of doing new things, not simply of repeating what other generations have achieved. In "The Socialist alteration of man," Vygotsky argued that the goal of education is the creation of a mankind that is qualitatively different from its predecessor. This paper will examine the educational ideas formulated by Vygotsky in his landmark paper “The socialist alteration of man”.
