Re: [xmca] Hallucinating Romantic Science
Thanks Huw for this video link.
On this topic of Romantic science, where do others locate Shweder's
understanding of "intentional worlds" within the notion of romantic
science? Do others connect Shweder with Bruner, Cole, and Luria in the
exploration of *romantic science"? There are differences in emphasis among
these various authors but is there also overlap??
Shweder wrote: Cultural Psychology is premised on existential UNCERTAINTY
(the search for meaning) and on a (so-called) "intentional" conception of
"constituted" worlds" [from the introduction chapter of Martin Packer's and
Mark Tappan's edited book "Cultural and Historical Perspectives of Human
Development" page 6].
Shweder's exploration of the ethical and moral dimensions within
constituted "intentional" worlds seems to interlink with Bruner's notion of
"possible Worlds, Actual Minds" which seems to share similar notions of
cultural psychology with Shweder.
Martin, in his introduction, locates the lineage of Scweder's "cultural
psychology" with "Aberlard, Herder, Hegel, Heidegger, and Brentano as one
stream. Other ancestral lines are Levy-Bruhl, Wittgenstein, Cicourel,
D'Andrade, Geertz, Kleinman, and Sapir.
I wonder if the cultural historical understanding of human nature existing
within the "gap" between time T and time T+1 can be linked to Shweder's
notion of the existential search for meaning as ALWAYS UNCERTAIN?
