[Xmca-l] Re: Volkelt's diagram (LSV's HMF Vol 4)



Dear all ,
Look at this please !
[[V. S. Bibler has singled out the following basic features of a thought experiment: 1) The
object of cognition is mentally transferred to conditions where its essence can be revealed
particularly clearly; 2) this object then undergoes further mental transformations; 3) this same
experiment leads to the formation of a system of mental links in which the object is
“embedded.” If the construction of this object can still be represented as a process of
abstraction of the real object’s properties, then this third moment essentially becomes a
productive contribution to the mentally represented object. It is only within this special
system of links that the object’s content gets revealed.]]
This is the same with "activity" as "molar" , that is , activity , action , operation are not parts or stages of a whole , discrete and separate even componential . As I can think of it , it is a point in a circular succession of a whole which could naturally be manifest in temporal instants . By definition , in a round of activity , neither itself , nor action , nor operation could keep to their constancy or stability or independence or invariability. At each point of succession or motionality , because of opposites , alterations in drives , motives , emotional incentives or stimuation , each of the three could be converted in the other as we all have seen . 
And there's an affinity in music domain . A whole melody is played with all nuances , pitch , other contours in their entire composition . It's a whole to be absorbed in its entirety so that the invited pleasurable feeling is obtained . Usually some individual wouldn't refer to a particular part or stage orietating on which this or that kind of affect or ecstacy runs through the soul . The individual might even stop to think of how to express it and he might  finally resort to imitation . Then , the philosopher , might refer to that particular point or that single note in whole composition or in playing as moment or as a temporal instant on which such and such a manifestation , event , episode , feature , state occurs . Taking that single note apart from the whole might be uncognizable or immanipulative in itself and the whole without it or with a substitute might lose the favor . Another example might be the "ideal" which is said to be immersed in material activity . Davydov's works are good sources for such qurries but I can't give a locus now .
