 Subject: [Xmca-l] Suvorov and Imagination
   
Greatly respected Haydi!!

My apologies for failing to attach this paper which was initially part of a
response to Larry's important note about the Bakhurst-Padden
paper in the lchc history archives.  Attribute it to old age and lack of
attention to detail.

There is a LOT of video stuff about Survorov on this on youtube, and his
notion of imagination is the center of attention here. Suvorov's is a
fascinating if upsetting story, yet to be written.  It would be great if
someone on xmca had time to bring these materials together for critical
analysis. Plenty of power and politics in his scientific case!!

Our paper includes a discussion of precisely how the issue of translation
of key concepts influences understanding how at least some Russians
appropriated LSV's legacy. There is an English translation of the Suvorov
paper discussed in the attached paper in JREEP and probably online
somewhere. Our paper takes using into some connections that people might
find interesting.

The topic of imagination seems worth a lot of attention at present.
