Here is a list of what, I believe, fully and deservedly qualifies to be called as "post-Revisionist revolutionary publications in Vygotsky Studies". The names are mostly new, the ideas are excitingly fresh, the list will be definitely continued. One day I might put myself together to create a new book, quite likely with the authors participating as the main contributors. We'll see...

In the meantime, the old-timers--the Gurus, the Priests, and the Saints--of the notorious Vygotsky cult must definitely go. Anyway, this is what--sooner or later--will happen, quite in line with what Thomas Kuhn once said about the so-called "scientific revolutions":
[page 18 When ... an individual or group first produces a synthesis able to attract most of the next generation’s practitioners, the older schools gradually disappear... But there are always some men who cling to one or another of the older views, and they are simply read out of the profession, which thereafter ignores their work. The new paradigm implies a new and more rigid definition of the field. Those unwilling or unable to accommodate their work to it must proceed in isolation or attach themselves to some other group.

In brief: the old poopers and their admirers go, the new generation comes! Nothing personal, nobody's perfect! The usual, you know. Ecclesiastes (c) ;)

Anyway, THE LIST:

* Bovo, A. C., Kunzler, A. P., & Toassa, G. (2019). Da “Escola” ao “Círculo” de Vigotski. Memorandum: Memória E História Em Psicologia, 36.

Palavras-chave: círculo de Vygotsky; psicologia histórico-cultural; Vygotsky, Lev Semenovich, 1896-1934; história da psicologia

* GARCIA, Luciano Nicolás. Utopia and Scientific Thinking: Reflections from the Soviet Psychology case. Rev. psicol. polít. [online]. 2019, vol.19, n.44, pp. 131-146. ISSN 2175-1390.

This article considers scientists as full intellectuals in order to locate and discuss the links between utopian imagination and scientific thinking in relation to public policies. This is carried out, on the one hand, by making an analysis of a historical case, the way in which Soviet psychology inserted and projected itself in the scientific policies of the Soviet Union during the 20th century. On the other hand, recent positions on the relationship between science and utopia from a series of authors with anti-establishment stands are considered. Finally, based on the mentioned case and positions, the place of utopia in the thought of psychological science is discussed and a way of understanding it is proposed.

Palavras-chave : History; Reflexivity; Politics; Communism; Feminism.
