In the web of dialogism and social inclusion: Bakhtin and Yakubinsky

Journal of Historical Archaeology & Anthropological Sciences
Fabiana Wanderley, Adriana Marques, Luciano Meira 


The objective of this article is to expose the contribution of Bakhtin and Yakubinsky’s thinking on the theme of dialogism and its implications for researchers in the areas of developmental psychology and cognition. We are aware that analyzing, in a few pages, the contributions of these theoretical contributions is daunting, but, at the same time, exciting and challenging. Fearful, because this is a complex line of thought that is still insufficiently known among us, since we are only recently having access to the main works of the respective authors.1–3 However, exciting and challenging, because this current of thought represents a way of overcoming some classic epistemological impasses faced by Psychology, regarding the relationship between thought and language; to being individual versus collective; to monologism versus dialogism, among others.
