Works of Vygotsky and his translations: discussing some concepts 1075

Prestes Z., professor at the Fluminense Federal University, Brazil

Abstract
Many works of Vygotsky have been adulterated around the world including in Russia. In this paper we analyze the trajectory of three books: Psikhologuia iskusstva (Psychology of Art), Pedagoguitcheskaia psikhologuia (Educational Psychology) and Michlenie i retch (Thinking and Speech) by the author in the Soviet Union, Russia and Brazil, including translations in order to identify alterations that may lead to misinterpretations of the ideas of Vygotsky and difficulties in understanding the historical trajectory of his thought. Therefore, we performed a comparison of different Russian editions and versions in other languages. It was possible to identify the omitting of important sections, inclusion of additional chapters not contained in the original book and mistranslations of terms from Russian to Portuguese. One example is the translation of concept zone blijaichego razvitia. In Brazil, this concept had two translations — zone of proximal development and immediate development zone. Because it is a fundamental concept of historical cultural theory, the article analyzes how the translations lead to distortions in the interpretation and understanding. Based on different works of Vygotsky in which the concept is approached, we present a new proposal for a translation: zone of imminent development.
