Dear all

To Mike's most novel initiative and thanks to his milder more moderate stance and to his most original and purest service to Human Essence as just one kind of Historical Tendency and as a true proportionate response to Alexander Surmava's 'heart-felt' deep expression of " When I see Mike Cole teaching the Mexican Kids , I cannot help but pour out my truest sense of gratitude and appreciation towards his personality " , we read Leontiev's all-too-naked letter to the Great Vygotsky once again .

Do we have crystal tears to shed upon this heart-breaking parting ? and the ever parting afterwards ?
Hopefully we have read A.N.Leontiev's 63 pages long article to this respect .

We might part ways physically but when our physiques are credited to the soil or put to fire flames , our ideas begin to ascend to eternity !

Thanks and Best Wishes

Two things about that program.

On the program itself: when there were closeups on the kids faces,

transfixed by

what they were watching, it was impossible to tell who was Russian, who


But when the camera pulled back, and the kids talked, the differences in


display and discourse styles smacks you in the face. Those performances

were not rehearsed. There was no time, just a brief window of opportunity

that we grabbed based on mutual trust among initiators.

A subsequent, much more elaborate program was planned for the following


but shot down with KAL airliner over Siberia at the last moment.

About one of the consequences of the program. An opening to begin joint


among Soviet and American psychologist/educators as described in the so

called velham report.  http://lchc.ucsd.edu/Histarch/velham.html

Might we be witnessing an analogous, much more loosely organized, effort at

collaboration around ideas here on XMCA these days? If so, could it be made
