Abstract: Today Vygotsky's theory is usually associated with a short list of ideas: which includes social formation of the human mind, zone of proximal development, semiotic mediation, and egocentric and inner speech. Vygotsky's theory contains these and many other ideas indeed. In today's interpretation, however, all the mentioned ideas are transformed into slogans with trivial content or even into a set of statements that contradict many facts known about the functioning of the human body and human mind.

(Toomela, 2015, p. 331, added emphasis)It is the hierarchically integrated structure—accomplished through sign mediation—that makes any re- constructive memory act in principle possible. Higher psychological functions—intentional attending to, and perceiving of, selected features of the environment are made meaningful in ways that go beyond the information given under the present circumstances.…”
