[xmca] Italica Mysteriosa

Does anyone know where this quotation ORIGINALLY&nbsp;comes from?
"(T)he search for method becomes one of the most important problems of the entire enterprise of understanding the uniquely human forms of psychological activity. In this case, the method is simultaneously prerequisite and product, the tool and the result of the study. (italics in the original)"
It's p. 65 of Mind in Society. But that chapter is made up of Chapter Three of the History of the Development of the Higher Mental Functions, in Volume Four of the Collected Works.
The weird thing is that I can find the passages right before and right after this italicized thing, but the italicized bit itself is simply not there.
Could it one of those interstitial interpolations that Gillen (2000) complains about? Since it is in italics, I can't believe it was written by one of the editors (Mike???).&nbsp;I remember hearing once that the main part of this book was a manuscript translated by Luria--did it come from there?
Can anyone help?
