Dear All,

This article may be of interest to some.



Pass, S. 2007, 'When Constructivists Jean Piaget And Lev Vygotsky
Were Pedagogical Collaborators: A Viewpoint From A Study Of Their
Communications', Journal of Constructivist Psychology, vol. 20, no.
3, pp. 277 - 282.

Jean Piaget, author of Genetic Epistemology, and Lev Vygotsky,
creator of Cultural-Historical Theory, were able to communicate and
exchange ideas for a period of five years. After 1929, despite Stalin
cutting off all East-West communications, they still were able to
have some communication. Many think that Genetic Epistemology and
Cultural-Historical Theory are dissimilar, but the knowledge of these
mutual communications presents the idea that these researchers
changed their pedagogical theories to become more similar to each
other's each time they were able to communicate.
