Dear Mike. Thank you for the reply.

1/ I did not want to bring any kind of mess of disorder to the high respected MCA community. I just wanted to get an answer to my question "Where Vygotsky speaks on the word meaning as the unit of analysis of human consciousness?" Who else if not Vygotskians can do it? I am working on the paper about this at the moment and I just wanted to know the opinions in the community. The answer I have got is not about unit but about the word meaning as microcosm.

2/ It was not my intention to discuss my paper on Marxism or the professors dresses in South Korea. I do not know how to react on criticisms of David and Ulvi even though the reaction is needed in such kind of discourse.

3/ I did not have in mind any "winning arguments" or "splitting hairs". If my questions bring such an impression I prefer to return to my status of the reader of this mailing list discussions, not the active participant.

I apologise for inconveniences.
