Abstract

Claiming Vygotsky as a theoretical source has become a common practice in much recent scholarship on teaching and learning. Doing so, however, is problematic given the reliance of most non-Russians on translated versions of Vygotsky and given the different ways people have found to appropriate what appears in both the original Russian versions and in the translations.
