On Relationships between Psychological and Sociocultural Perspectives.
Thompson, Pat; Cobb, Paul
Sociocultural perspectives of education and educative processes occupy center stage in educational research and mathematics education, and this is a natural reaction to the recent dominance of reductionist psychological theories. This paper wants to make public an ongoing discussion related to the compatibility of the psychological and sociocultural perspectives. It also discusses how either theory can be reconceptualized to be more compatible with the other. (Contains 28 references.) (DDR)
