RE: [xmca] Vygotsky and Dilthey? Perzhivanie and Erlebnis?


Vygostky-Dilthey connection is well documented. Example according to Yaroshevsky : "Indeed Vygotsky saw the "psychology of the mind" of Dilthey as the most dangerous
opponent of the scientific study of consciousness ((pp. 335-336; Yaroshevsky, M. 1989: Lev Vygotsky. Moscow: Progress Publishers) 

At least in article "Fascism in psychoneurology"  Vygotsky mentioned Dilthey once: "When Ebbinghaus' elemental psychology collided with Dilthey's structural psychology, associative psychology was no longer a living theory
and it was only used as a research method in opposition to structural psychology. This is why German Gestalt psychology was essentially fighting phantoms when it opposed the atomistic theory of the mind. It was defending a theory against a method."

This article can be found in here (The Vygotsky Reader edited by Rene van der Veer and Jaan Valsiner  ):

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"?
