Description - Piaget, Vygotsky & Beyond by Julie Dockrell

Jean Piaget and Lev Vygotsky are arguably the two most influential figures in psychological research. Although born in the same year of 1896, it is only over the last decade or so that the work of Vygotsky has rivalled that of Piaget in importance in the Western world. Piaget, Vygotsky and Beyond examines the contribution made by these two seminal figures and assesses their possible influence over future work to be carried out in the next few years leading into the new millennium. Arranged around five themes (educational intervention and teaching, social collaboration and learning, cognitive skills and domain-specificity, the measurement of development and the development of modal understanding), each paper is followed by a discussant's comments. Piaget, Vygotsky and Beyond is a uniquely comprehensive collection, drawing together a wide range of themes in psychology and educational research that would otherwise be dispersed throughout a variety of different publications. It will be useful to advanced scholars and practitioner-researchers in both education and psychology. Professor Michael Beveridge, University of Bristol; Professor Michael Shayer, University of Cambridge; Dr. Gerard Duveen, University of Cambridge; Professor A.N. Perret-Clermon
