[Xmca-l] Re: SSD and Perezhivanie



I find this short explanation of the SSD really helpful, Andy. This makes it more like a form of social affordance so not something which can be sliced into 'units' but more of a relationship BETWEEN a person and the social environment as experienced by that person. What makes it so rich is that the environment can meet itself coming back - but not quite itself, instead a version of itself transformed by the perezhivanie of the person who experiences it in a particular way and responds in a particular way. So in a conversation we learn about our friends by (often not consciously) noticing how our contributions are refracted by their perezhivanie.

Clearly, in ontogeny, a variety of maturational changes (increasing mobility, increasing interest in other people's attention, increasing ability to 'read' social situations and increasing autonomy for example) will change the interactional space between child and caregivers and it is not surprising that caregivers are not always fully able to keep up, leading to 'crises' of varying degrees. How critical a crisis turns out to be is surely as much due to the caregiver's expectations and culture ('You WILL respect my authority!') as to the child's 'inner' state and the space between is negotiated and adjusted from both sides.

All the best,

Rod

SSD is a term defined by Vygotsky in his study of Child Development in Volume 6 of the Collected Works.
See https://www.marxists.org/archive/vygotsky/works/1934/problem-age.htm
The SSD is a unique relationship between the (social) environment and the child, designated by normative cultural terms such as "school child"
or "infgant" etc.
