Re: [xmca] guess who

Mead was also my first guess (and it really was a guess, since I haven't actually read Mead)

But I thought the more interesting thing about the provocation is that even though it seemed like exactly what I would expect from Mead, I could not be certain, because there are a number of others we are interested in who could just as well have said the same. That's what I find most interesting in this.

And I do think this is part of Hegel's legacy, such that even Lacan could have said much the same as this, although with somewhat differing implications.

Got it first try. Mead got his PhD with Dilthey. My own guess is that this
goes back to at least Hegel, but others would know better.

We just got done reading Mead in our pragmatism reading group here,
and it sounds very Meadish (Vygotsky crossed with Dewey), so that's my
guess. Honest I didn't look it up on Google.

I really enjoyed the Holland & Lachicotte, and Edwards chapters on the
parallels between Mead and Vygotsky in the Cambridge handbook. Highly
recommended for anyone unfamiliar with Mead's work.

?*The self is something which has a development*, it is not initially
at birth, but arises in the process of social experiences and activity,
is, develops in the given individual as a result of his relations to that
process as a whole and to other individuals within that process?

My own relations are saying get the hell off the computer, the doorbell
ringing and the goblins are on the move. So off i go.
