[Xmca-l] In defense of Vygotsky [The unit of analysis is activity - perezhivanie doesn't exist in the world, while activity does.]



This continues and extends from my original post concerning Andy's breakdown of ANL vs. LSV.

There are about 8 points total... [copypasta is a starch of art]

--------------------------------------------------- 5. [The unit of analysis is activity - perezhivanie doesn't exist in the world, while activity does.] (see original post below) --------------------------------------------------- OK, he compares his theory with LSV's, but ANL's argument isn't persuasive. What I'm trying to capture is the rhetorical pathway. Sorry if that isn't clear, either.

ANL poses: Is the matter really about unity of the subject and the environment, or the relationship between the subject's consciousness and activity among objects in the environment (i.e. objective reality)? Thus LSV has failed to see the problem clearly, it is _activity_ that is the appropriate unit of analysis, not perezhivanie.
