Questioning Vygotsky's "Theory" of Play.
Lambert, E. Beverley
Early Child Development and Care, v160 p25-31 Feb 2000
Analyzes key assumptions behind Vygotsky's writing on children's play. Argues that Vygotsky's writings about play do not constitute a psychological theory, and would be better acknowledged as part of the historical evolution of ideas about children's play. Maintains that theoretical significance of Vygotsky's opinion about play can be questioned based on current research in the area. (Author/KB)
