The intent of this paper is to outline the Vygotskian approach to concept formation and to argue that this approach can be useful in physics education research. Vygotsky's theoretical approach is useful as we consider the contextual dependence of students' problem solutions. Vygotsky's approach can also help interested researchers move beyond explanations of what is going on inside the head of the individual and into the domain of the processes of learning that take place in the broader social and cultural milieu.
