[Xmca-l] Re: culture and emotion



Peter,
Thanks for this. Reminds me lots of Volosinov's argument about Freudianism
and how at times of crises, the bourgeosie tend to revert to discourses of
"naturalism" (Prinz's "biocentrism").

AS IF the social order IS the natural order.

Seems like we are at such a time again...
