Cultural-historical psychology and the activity approach in the studies of modern education: сomments 1327


Veggetti S.M.
PhD in Psychology, Full professor of General Psychology, Chair of Psychopedagogy of Communication, Sapienza University of Rome, Rome, Italy

With reference to the Presentation of the colleague Lucisano of the Sapienza University, the author stresses the still great meaning of the KIP by Vygotskij for a correct understanding of today’s needs for education and instruction in Europe. Expecially the further analysis and deepening of KIP by Davydov predisposes a full understanding of the learning activity as a way not for competing, but for attaining a general growth of the entire human personality. The project for a new Programme on “Historical cultural psychology and Activity Theory Approach in Instruction”, existing in Moscow at the Psycho-pedagogical University and cared for by a team of Vygotskian followers engaged in the realizing of it, demonstrates the strong potential connection between the KIP theory and the social needs of present-day society. Moreover, a new historical-cultural school was projected and will be opened in Russia.

Keywords: KIP, science- foundation, Social ties of instruction, new master programme, new historical-cultural school

Column: In celebration of the 120th birthday of Lev S. Vygotsky
