[Xmca-l] Re: Shpet & principium cognescenti



That is a wonderful overview of Spet's life and sequence of ideas, Larry.
It clearly draws a line from Husserl to Shpet and, we know from the writing
of Zinchenko and Wertsch, from Spet to
Vygotsky. Mysl i slovo is "thought and word" in reference to the journal.

Vygotsky was not taken out and shot and he did not make public his
indebtedness to Shpet, or so it seems. Instead he died of tuberculosis, as
the terror began to make itself public.

Great to have a skeleton of the story
