520    The book outlines a fundamental alternative to the rising 
       wave of aggressive biological reductionism and brainism in
       contemporary psychology and education. It offers steps to 
       achieving a daunting and elusive goal: constructing a 
       coherently non-reductionist account of the mind. The main 
       obstacle to such a construction is identified as the 
       centuries-old contemplative fallacy that leads to 
       entrenched dualisms and shackles major theoretical 
       frameworks. The alternative agentive activity perspective 
       overcomes this fallacy by advancing the core principles of
       the cultural-historical activity theory. This innovative 
       perspective charts a consistently non-mentalist and non-
       individualist view of psychological processes without 
       discarding the individual mind. A vast body of research 
       and theories, from Piaget and Dewey to sociocultural and 
       embodied cognition approaches are critically engaged, with
       a special focus on Piotr Galperin's contribution. The 
       notion of the embodied agent's object-directed activity 
       serves as a pivotal point for re-conceptualizing the mind 
       and its role in behavior. In a radical departure from both
       the traditional mentalist and biologically reductionist 
       frameworks, psychological processes are understood as 
       taking place "beyond the brain" - as constituted by the 
       agent's activities in the world. From this standpoint, 
       many of Vygotsky's key insights, including semiotic 
       mediation, internalization, and cognitive tools are given 
       a fresh scrutiny and substantially revised. The agentive 
       activity perspective opens ways to offer a bold vision for
       education: developmental teaching and learning built on 
       the premise that real knowledge is not "information 
       storage and retrieval" and that education is not about 
       "knowledge transmission" but instead it is about 
       developing students' minds
