Vygotsky’s warning: General science and the need for metalevel research
University of Western Australia, Australia.
2016 (English)In: Mind, culture and activity, ISSN 1074-9039, E-ISSN 1532-7884, Vol. 23, no 2, 95-107 p.Article in journal (Refereed) Published
Abstract [en]

Over ninety years ago Lev Vygotsky warned of a growing crisis in psychology and social science research. Vygotsky’s warning has been echoed on many occasions but his solution to the problem has not been widely acknowledged. He advocated for a form of meta-science which he called “general science”, an integrative science that could connect and guide the development of specialised disciplines and schools of research. In this paper I explore the parallels between Vygotsky’s general science and contemporary forms of meta-level research and discuss their relevance and implications for addressing global challenges.
