DELARI JUNIOR, Achilles. Senses of “drama” in Vygotsky’s perspective: a boundary dialogue between art and psychology. Psicol. estud. [online]. 2011, vol.16, n.2, pp. 181-197. ISSN 1413-7372. http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S1413-73722011000200002.
This text has a theoretical-methodological character, in a Russian-Soviet meaning for the word “methodology”. Its core subject matter is the imprecise treatment given by Lev Vygotsky (1896-1934) for the notion “drama” in 22 of his works that we could have access, until this moment (articles, chapters and entire books). Generally, the notion of “drama” in Vygotsky has two main connotations: (1) a more colloquial one: “human development as a drama in several acts”, for instance; and (2) a more specific one, outstanding two major aspects in a “dramatic action”: 2.1 an act of volition, human decision about the conduction of his/her own historical destiny; 2.2 the collision between different social roles that each person live through [perezhivaet]. This peculiarities constitutes the (in)tense, dialectically conflictive, of socially decide by a vital way or another, in a given historical-cultural context - since the commonest one, until that more decisive in a situation of life or death - “to be or not to be”.
