The path of acquiring a concept is not the concept. The flight of a moth and is not light.

1. Concepts are processes not entities or structures. Not only ontigenetically, but also microgenetically and culturally. 2. The "anatomy" of a real concept, as Vygotsky sees it, is the several paths of development contained in it. Vygotsky studied these paths of development in order to understand real concepts. A limb is not a person, but to understand the human body one must grasp its parts, its anatomy.
