[Xmca-l] Re: Fwd: [Методология и история психологии] Uploaded What theory is not.pdf



Mike:

This article struck me as theoretically naive. First of all, the whole idea
of articles without theory is a little silly, particularly for anybody who
has taken Chapter Two of Thinking and Speech and Vygotsky's critique of
Piaget's atheoretism on board. Secondly, the idea that "why" questions and
a focus on causality is a hallmark of theory essentially writes off the
whole of Dilthey, descriptivism, structuralism and post-structuralism. You
might not agree with this line of thought and body of work, but to deny it
status as theory seems pointless.

I must admit, though, the whole genre of editors and reviewers
who repackage as articles their complaints about having to review articles
by professors who are desperate to publish is rather puzzling to me. There
are plenty of other channels for this sort of thing, e.g. reviews, pub
discussions, and even xmca. But perhaps they too  are desperate to publish.
Or am I being compulsively cynical?
