[Xmca-l] Re: Request: Chandler article



Paul Turner introduces a term (recentering) on page 353 that is important for exploring the notion of (decentering) that is the core concern of Piaget’s theory.
Recentering is the opposite of Piaget’s model of mental development – but – this recentering mode of thought should not be confused with the primitive egocentricity of childhood. On the contrary, recentering presupposes that decenterong has already happened.

Recentering expresses a particular *sensibility* (disposition?) or subjective relationship to the phenomena of decentring and recentering THROUGH figurative symbolism that orders (or constrains) cultural/historical phenomena.
