This chapter focuses on Vygotsky's writings on education, placing them into the broader context of his theory. Our central argument is that understanding Vygotsky's views on education means examining the relations among individual, interpersonal, and socio-historical influences on human development. As we make that argument, we are going to rely heavily on quotations from Vygotsky's writings, primarily because as more and more scholars have come to invoke Vygotsky's name in support of their research, there seems to be limited attention paid to the corpus of his writings, even though they are now readily available to English speakers.
