"rather, the incorporation of tools into the activity creates a
new structural relation in which the cultural (mediated) and natural
(unmediated) routes operate synergistically;"
I have taken this point made my Mike to be the basis for Vygotsky's method of
dual stimulation -- using extant "structural relations" to co-create new
ones, e.g. shown blocks called "bic", etc.
And then, I also take there to be this similarity with Uslucan's writing:
"semiosis relies upon the history of the interpretant, with whom
interpretation is a putting-into-relation-of-prior-signs. "
Or am i being mistaken?
