MEDIA REVIEWS
`Although the writings in this volume were composed over 60 years ago, most of the conceptualizations offered are wholly current and contemporary....Everything we teach today in this area is here....Exceedingly valuable. The reading will not be easy, but it certainly will be worthwhile.'
Contemporary Psychology, from a review of Volume 2

`All academic libraries, even those in two-year colleges, should add these volumes to their collections.'
Choice, February 1998

`Volume 3 reveals Vygotsky's powerful philosophical vision far more richly than previously translated materials...The Collected Works in English are particularly valuable because a broad and honest reading of Vygotsky challenges common assumptions about psychology. By building on Vygotsky's more promising insights, psychology might have a better chance of overcoming the divisions it still faces.'
American Scientist, May - June, 1998
