Re: [xmca] moral life of babies
I wanted to say thank you for the 2 articles. I just downloaded them.
I can see that these questions have been on your mind for at least 27 years.
You mention that the 1983 was quite phenomenological but that the questions engaged with are still relevant.
On this question of phenomenology and sociocultural ways of understanding [and explaining activity/experience] it made me reflect on Dewey's comments that he wishes he had used the term "cultural" rather than "experience". The term "experience" could not transcend its intrapsychic notions in our cultural context.
Martin when I read your work and the way you link up notions of experience and sociocultural notions I wonder if today Dewey could continue to use the term "experience" and a few more people could understand its grounding in pragmatics.
I am looking forward to reading these 2 historical documents, and yes, the themes explored in these papers continue to be at the foundation of understanding our humanness.
