[Xmca-l] Re: Unreading Althusser


mike, you have in your own special way done as I have asked by leaving breadcrumbs to the path that I must take. 

And for THAT I thank you for your kindnesses.

In addition! I am happy to hear from others as well, for we are a community! :) So if anyone else out there has another crumb for the path, please will you FESS UP????

It is a good idea, mike, thinking to pull the threads together. I shall in my small way INVESTIGATE!!!!

Kind regards on a Saturday after a nice day of sunshine!

I fear i cannot do as you ask, Annalisa.  My plate overfloweth and leaveth
garbage around as it is. Perhaps others are in a position to elaborate or
perhaps I was just being obscure. I think its an important topic.

This might be one of the places where some curating would help. A lot of
that discussion is in the MCA archive . Important documents include Andy's
defense of Vygotsky available on Academic .edu and probably in the XMCA
mail archive and Morten Nissen's article in Andy's book on projects that I
sent around recently but seems to have landed under eveyone's radar but
Greg's. Morten specifically points out this problem in the writings of
Scandanvian/Nordic activity theorists. Pulling that all together could be
quite informative.

It is the dilemma of psychology to deal as a natural science with an object
