Lançamento do livro “Revisiting Vygotsky for Social Change”

Publicado em 28 novembro 2020

Pensadores contemporâneos e pesquisadores de diferentes partes do mundo envolvidos na realização do desenvolvimento humano empregam a teoria de Vygotsky para lidar com os novos desafios sociais que surgem em um mundo global, mas profundamente dividido (Santos, 2000; Souza e Santos, 2008; Martín-Baró, 1998). Os capítulos deste livro lançam luz sobre os princípios iniciais de Vygotsky adicionando perspectivas críticas e sociais como uma forma de expandir seu legado às necessidades contemporâneas globais, como uma reflexão crítica da perspectiva da mudança social, dinâmica social e desenvolvimento humano, situações ético-políticas de poder de ação, relação dialética do ser humano com a sociedade, contradições nos eventos dramáticos da vida de um indivíduo e consciência do ambiente social para mudar ativamente as formas de vida existentes.
