  • The authors argue that, in the research trajectory of cultural historical psychology,
    there are nuclear aspects of Vygotsky"s theory that have been insufficiently considered.
    Three of these aspects are herein discussed: the intense and rapid changes to
    mediational processes and their influence on human psyche; meaningful findings
    on neuroplasticity that require a neuropsychological approach; and, perhaps most
    importantly, the need for cultural historical approach, and for psychology at large, to
    return to the study of the direction and meaning of human life.
