[Xmca-l] Article for Discussion

Dear XCMA-er-o-philes-

We thought it appropriate to put up for discussion the paper by Roland
Tharp and Cliff  O'Donnell from the most recent issue of MCA. Roland wanted
to stimulate discussion among what he and Cliff saw as people with a strong
family resemblance. He passed away before this part of the discussion could
take place.

Roland and Cliff argue for the mutual relevance of Cultural Community
Psychology and Vygotskian inspired research in the approach referred to
often in these pages as CHAT, not only because it is an acronym for
cultural-historical activity theory, but because we have a tradition of
chatting here about the ideas in papers that sample our different interests.

In this case, Cliff is intending to send this message and an invitation to
people from Community Psychology to join in. May it be celebratory of
Roland's long life seeking to promote growth enhancing communication.

Its legal, free, above board, and, hopefully, interesting!



It is the dilemma of psychology to deal as a natural science with an object
that creates history. Ernst Boesch
