L. S. Vygotsky and D. B. El'konin: Sign mediation

The author presents D. B. El'konin's reflections on aggregate activity and sign mediation, based on analysis of L. S. Vygotsky's cultural-historical theory. These reflections lead to the notion of mediating open action as an action characterised by including into one person's actions the orientation to another person's actions.
