[Xmca-l] Re: how to broaden/enliven the xmca discussion

My apologies, Martin - this is what comes of trying to catch up with a fascinating discussion without having enough time to read each post carefully (and sensitively) enough.

Just to reduce confusion, I want to point out that it was Andy who provided this account of  Dmitry Leontiev's presentation at ISCAR, not me.  And I think Andy was rejecting the argument. In fact, if I understood correctly (there was a lot of irony in Andy's message!), D. Leontiev was both summarizing and criticizing a position that his father (A. N. Leontiev) had made.
