Re: [xmca] Linguistic Anthropology and hostility to the study of language?

Thanks very much, tony. I'll give a listen.
Odd coincidence- I am preparing materials for a course on mediational
theories of mind and was reflecting on differing nature of experience
mediated in different ways (e.g., oral language, written language, film,
etc...... All such questions imply that the medium and the experience are
not equivalent or else how could listening to the ode to joy evoke such
different experiences than reading Schiller?? (I ask myself, naively).
Dewey writes of "art and experience." We seem to be back around to a version
of the question of "separation of individual and context" which has been
discussed here from time to time.
