[Xmca-l] Re: Foucault

Thanks for this lead. I went to google books and was intrigued by 45Dosse's
introduction [and also intrigued by the term [the Rising Sign 1945-1966]
Discussing the relations between teacher's and mentors I have noticed that
it is not so much the following a SIMILAR trajectory but more a *question
and answer* relationship.  The relation of Heidegger TO Husserl as
Heidegger *addresses* his responses to the concealment of the teacher.
Gadamer's project was *addressed* to what was concealed within Heidegger.
The mentor does not RE-PRESENT the teacher's perspective but is *called
forth* to *answer* the teacher.
This way of focusing on the psycho-dramatics contrasts with psycho=dynamics
as analysis.

There is a section of Dosse's introduction to this book that is relevant to
our ongoing consideration of CHAT as a science. On page xxv Dosse writes:
 Can we, however, reflect upon man AS IF the Copernican-Galilean
revolution, the Freudian and Marxist fractures, and the progress of the
social sciences has not taken place? Pointing out the shortcomings of
structuralism does not imply returning to the golden age of the
Enlightenment. To the contrary it means moving forward toward a HISTORICAL
humanism can be established....  We CALL upon the advances made in the
social sciences to ANSWER to the emergence of a humanism of the possible,
perhaps around the TRANSITORY FIGURE of a dialogic man"

Rauno, thanks for this lead that was calling me to turn and focus my
attention on the historical emergence of the rising sign and the questions
with which we are engaged
