[Xmca-l] Re: Videos on perezhivanie from Nikolai Veresov

Thanks for this, Andy.

Nikolai’s emphasis on the distinction between P1 (the phenomenon of perezhivanie as a psychological process) and P2 (the abstract concept of perezhivanie as part of a theory) resonates, for me, with Ingold’s emphasis on doing – ‘human’, ‘thought’, ‘activity’ and ‘experience’ are convenient fictions which allow us to stop the continuous flow of humaning, thinking, acting or experiencing so that we can think ABOUT them. I picture this as being like those moments in films (I think first in ‘The Matrix’) when the action is paused as we move around within it, looking at it from various angles. Like a statue or model, the noun allows us to consider a process or event from different angles but the convenience of freezing the movement comes at a cost. There is a risk that we can forget that a human is only a human when it is humaning, an activity is only an activity when it is being enacted, etc.

The way the social situation of development is ‘refracted’ through a particular child’s perezhivanie seems to me to be like the way the environment is ‘understood’ and understanding is etymologically close to ‘standing among’. Being and acting within a social situation of development shapes (develops) the prism through which the social situation of development will shape development.

All the best,
