Message from Francine Smolucha:
The most direct application of Vygotsky is to observe (and document) howthe verbal guidance of a more knowledgeable person is internalized assilent self-guiding inner speech. This is done through discourse analysis.Sometimes there is an intermediate step where the learner speaks parts of theverbal guidance outloud to him(her)self ( Social Speech - Private Speech -Inner Speech).[Note Vygotsky used the term egocentric speech instead of the contemporary term private speech]. It would be great to use neural imaging techniques to documenthow the cortical functions of the prefrontal cortices change as the executivefunction emerges as the self-guiding speech is employed and internalized.
Two excellent books that deal with this process are
Private Speech, Executive Functioning, and the Development of VerbalSelf-Regulation by Winsler, A,. et. al. ( Cambridge, 2009)
The Prefrontal Cortex by Joaquin Fuster (Academic Press, 2009).[Pages 369-371 discuss the development of creativity as prefrontal self-regulationof imagination with direct reference to the work of both Vygotsky and Luria. Thisis consistent with my interpretation of Vygotsky's theory of creativity - seeSmolucha, L. and Smolucha, F. (2012) Vygotsky's Theory of Creativity inContemporary Perspectives on Research in Creativity in Early Childhood Education(Information Age Publishing, pp.63-88)]
Hope this was of some help.

> Greetings for all,
> Please, I understand that I have a major methodological problem in my nearest research project: "how to understand human making-sense through the concrete acts of a person's speech?". Along many years I had thought about Vygotsky's claim that "“Semiotic [and/or "semantic" = semicheskyj] analysis is the only adequate method for the study of the systemic and semantic structure of consciousness.” (see http://www.marxists.org/archive/vygotsky/works/1934/problem-consciousness.htm). But it is not so clear how to proceed "Semiotic/semantic analysis". Then, if you pleased, could somebody help me, shining my mind about the (im)possibilities about somebody really learn *how to do* such kind of analysis? Here in Brazil, close to me, there is nobody working with something in this direction, then I have no local resources to ask for... Forgive me about the naive character of the question, but I really want to learn about.
