[Xmca-l] Re: Vladimir Petrovich Zinchenko. Sad News

It is such a huge loss. With his death an era in Russian psychology is over. Not only was he an incredibly deep, creative, engaging, and powerful thinker, he also had an incredibly deep, creative, engaging, and powerful personality. I am indebted to Vladimir Petrovich, my teacher, so much and in so many different ways; and I am sure many, many people feel the same.

That's lovely, Elina, and it resonates. I'm happy to have met and conversed with him once about every ten years since the late 70s. He always gave something new to ponder.

Sad news, indeed. No matter what interested  his tireless creative mind and
refulgent soul - general psychology, ergonomics, philosophy, or poetical
anthropology - it was always deeply humanistic and personal. His jokes and
"fables" will live as long as those who were privileged to be listeners
will remember them.

Subject: [Xmca-l]  Vladimir Petrovich Zinchenko. Sad News

Our colleague and friend, Volodya Zinchenko, has died. He will be sorely
missed by his many friends and by world wide scholarly efforts to
understand the nature of human nature. Attached is an appreciation of his
work that Jim Wertsch and I wrote not too long ago. Many of his
writings can be found in *Soviet Psychology* and *Journal of Russian and
East European Psychology*.

Words fall silent in the void he leaves behind.
