Mind, Society, and Racism.
Meacham, Jack
Human Development, v39 n5 p301-06 Sep-Oct 1996
Uses example of racism to compare Vygotsky's and Piaget's perspectives on the development of mind within the framework of questions regarding the mutual influence of societies and individuals. Notes that Vygotsky emphasizes knowledge transmission from older to younger, whereas Piaget emphasizes construction of new knowledge with potential for transforming culture, society, and history. Neither account for humans' emancipatory interest. (Author/KB)
