Example text

Emphasizing the need to explain rather than merely describe psychological processes that are unique to human beings, Vygotsky argued that they have their source not in biological structures or the learning of the isolated individual but in historically developed sociocultural experience. Suggesting that the mechanisms governing the development of innate behaviors had been identified by Darwin and that those governing individual learning had been identified by Pavlov, Vygotsky emphasized the need to identify the mechanism that allows the development of psychological processes in the individual through the acquisition of social and cultural experience.

On the other hand, these constructs did not allow Vygotsky to link psychological development with the development of social behavior in the way that his conception of the higher mental functions and their development in social interaction had. Fundamental to the third and final phase of Vygotsky’s work was the attempt to develop an explanatory framework and a system of constructs that would permit an analysis of the development of psychological systems in connection with the development of social behavior.
