Understanding Vygotsky's Motive and Goal: An Exploration of the Work of A. N. Leontiev.
Glassman, Michael
Human Development, v39 n6 p309-27 Nov-Dec 1996
Contrasts work of Leontiev and Vygotsky. Suggests that Leontiev concentrated on social activity as a whole, whereas Vygotsky made semiotic mediation through culturally developed symbols a central aspect of his analysis. Maintains that they shared a philosophical base and that Leontiev used Vygotsky's ideas as a starting point to explore human consciousness. (Author/KB)
