The result of many years of work
This chapter gives an idea of the ideological atmosphere in the Soviet academic world of the early 1930s. The first part of the text is based on a note written in violet ink and in pencil on seven notebook pages fastened together by a paperclip. Part of the pages have been lost. The manuscript documents, among other things, Vygotsky's presentation of the content of his planned book, Thinking and speech, to a small committee and shows that the initial plan was broader and included a chapter about the freedom of will.
