AbstractThis article aims to develop a conceptual reading from the theoretical core of the cultural-historical school to the theory of social representations. The historic-cultural School, influenced by Marxism, far from implying the annulment of the subject, shows how the psychosocial content is expressed from the language-thought relationship to the categories of experience, zone of proximal development and social situation of development. For these authors, man is a social being and their personological singularities are expression of multiple gradations of the universal-contextual law. Also, the theory of social representations addresses the broad impact of a relational social context in shaping the notions of reality, and has a high impact on the social sciences. An approach from the cultural historical perspective would allow deepening and broadening the edges of the theory of social representations, which may contribute to the development of psychology. The analysis is beneficial to the areas of general and social field.
