[Xmca-l] Vygotsky.Peirce.Mediation



The header is a three word summary of the topic that seems to have emerged
to engage discussion, James, so maybe use that
or put together a header of your own. Semiotics could be there.

A discussion of this topic might begin by unearthing the discussions in an
earlier xmca generation. Arne Raeithel and Alfred Lang
led discussion on this topic as has, I believe, Jay Lemke. Alfred was
steadfast in his interpretation of Vygotsky as a dualist in
precisely the way that Andy did in a recent note. Its in the newsletter and
the archives, or perhaps in Andy's computer.

Given that as background,  what new insights can we gain from considering
these early efforts at mutual enlightenment via computer *mediated*
discourse??

Could some of the core discussers organize to point us to prior
understandings of this nexus of topics from the xmca/xlchc archives?
That would provide a starting point for assessing the answer to my
question. Otherwise, I fear we will be unable to supercede a collective
level of discourse that corresponds more or less to chaining in a
Vygotskian conceptual hierarchy.
