Andy Blunden presents an immanent critique of Cultural-Historical Activity Theory, the pschychology originating from Lev Vygotsky (1896-1934). Tracing the roots of this theory from Goethe, Hegel and Marx, the author draws out the principles with which Vygotsky developed a theory of the mind in which transcended the problems of mind-body dualism.
