The Nature of the Social for Piaget and Vygotsky.
Kitchener, Richard F.
Human Development, v39 n5 p243-49 Sep-Oct 1996
Examines Piaget's and Vygotsky's conception of the relation of the social to the individual, including individualism versus holism, Piaget's alternative of relationalism, and Vygotsky's views of the nature of the social. Suggests that Piaget's denial and Vygotsky's advocacy of explanatory emergence leads to the question of domain-general versus domain-specific psychological principles and their relation to social principles.
