Now a Classic: Lev Vygotsky Revolutionary Scientist

IMG_0294

 

Twenty years after its original publication, Fred Newman and Lois Holzman’s Lev Vygotsky Revolutionary Scientist will be re-published this coming August  as a Routledge Psychology Press, Classic Edition. The book, which was translated into Portuguese in 2002, presents Vygotsky as a brilliant Marxist methodologist unique to his time—and remarkably relevant to ours. His  ‘search for method’ as portrayed by Newman and Holzman challenges the very foundations of traditional psychology and its conceptions of human development and learning. Holzman is currently writing an introduction to the new edition that brings readers up to date on who Vygotsky has become.
