[xmca] Vygotsky and Dilthey? Perzhivanie and Erlebnis?

Just making connections a propos of Anton's mention that perezhivanie is a
direct translation of the German erlebnis.

I was recently reading The Anthropology of Experience in which Edward
Bruner looks to link anthropology, through Victor Turner, to Dilthey and
his important concept "erlebnis".

Vygotsky certainly would have known about Dilthey, no?


p.s. I also wonder if Dilthey would have been a significant influence on
Dewey and his notion of "experience"?
