Method issues in Vygotsky's texts: contributions to psychology research

This article, of an eminently theoretical nature, discusses some methodological issues that permeated the development of Lev S. Vygotski's research and spread throughout his work. To undertake this discussion, some texts from the first three volumes of his Complete Works, Spanish Edition, were chosen for analysis, from which the following thematic units were identified: the relationship between problem/method/inquiry techniques; the singular/collective relationship and its methodological implications; history and dialectics as methodological fundamentals; method principles; search of the senses as unit of analysis of historical-cultural Psychology. The reflections presented here can be useful for contemporary researchers who share the ontological and epistemological conceptions of historical-cultural Psychology.
