Abstract:

Given the present day popularity of Vygotskian psychology—sometimes even referred to as „Vygotsky boom“—it is surprising how little we still understand the societal and cultural life of Vygotskian tradition itself, known variably as „instrumental“, „historical“ or „cultural“ or „socioculturual psychology“, „activity theory“ or „cultural-historical activity theory“, or even the ridiculous „theory of the zone of proximal development“. The multitude of these terms is in fact indicative of the lack of agreement among contemporary scholars on what exactly constitutes Vygotsky’s contribution to international science, and, subsequently, on the pathways of its development today, which underlines the need for historical analysis and theoretical reconstruction of Vygotsky’s thought, and motivates the investigation into social history of Vygotskian psychology in its Soviet and international context. This paper presents an historical study on the mechanisms of reception and social construction of Vygotskian tradition from 1930s onwards in the Soviet Union and worldwide. An overview of several strands in Vygotsky-inspired research will be presented against intellectual, cultural and historical background of Soviet and international science from the 1930s and unitl the end of Cold War. A preliminary analysis of the historical and cross-cultural trends behind the increasing interest to Vygotskian scholarship concludes this presentation.
