[Xmca-l] Re: Chomsky, Vygotsky, and phenomenology



I do not want people to come down on...thinking out loud about another way to resolve the controversy between chomskyianites and vygotskyites...i think it can be done through phenomenology (arrogance of youth maybe, but I am going to try it)....

</div>Is it really the case thay chomsky and Vygotsky diametrically oppose one another?  As I read Vygotsky it appears as if something is missing.  That something for me was the internalization process.  I was reading his concept of internalization as though he was suggesting that it took place among an empiricist view of the human being as a "blank slate."  hence my questions in the previous thread.  If chomsky is right, which I think he is to some extent, does that change Vygotsky or can we synthesize the two?
I am working on a paper to attempt to do just that through phenomenology....
