Re: [xmca] Re: Luria - New Vodka Old Bottle PDF

Greg, I think that the answer is that these disciplines exist, but exist alongside a myriad of other such specialised disciplines, contributing to the fragmented image of the fragmented world we live in, which is presented by academia. What Vygotsky and Luria and Leontyev were offering was a General Psychology, as a foundation for a general, *interdisciplinary* science of human life. Nothing wrong with specialisation of course. Science is impossible without it. But Psychology, as the founders of CHAT imagined it, was interdisciplinary, I believe, rather than a discipline which defended its boundaries against encroachment, and carved out a niche for itself.

What ever happened to Ethnographic Psychology or Experimental Anthropology?
In today's intellectual climate in Psychology and Anthropology, they feel
like oxymorons, or even impossibilities (and perhaps to some very
few, "cutting edge").
Seems like we're just going around in circles...

Here is a review I wrote some years ago about Luria's Nature of Human
Conflicts. It summarizes and provides illustrations of some of the issues
we have been discussing while introducing others.
Note that a few years ago, the book did appear in Russian based on
reconstruction of the original
manuscript by Victor Belopolsky. It is my impression that the book is
little known or appreciated in Russia but I might be mistaken.
For what its worth

Hi BJ-- I will get the article reviewing luria referred to in earlier
message next.

There is an attachment here.  Call it, Cole Review of Nature of Human
Conflicts and put it under the Nature of Human Conflicts on the Luria
page and on the page "about" luria.
