Re: [xmca] Message in a Bottle Erratum

Paula just sent me something quite kind about my Message in a Bottle. Praise from Paula is praise indeed, particularly where Chapter Five of T&S is concerned.
I was just letting it go to my head and linger when I noticed the following stupid mistake:
"So in this sense the new theory in which concepts (sic) are left at the school door is not entirely inconsistent with the old theory according to which thinking in concepts really only takes place in the transitional age (i.e. adolescence)."
Of course, it's COMPLEXES that the 1934 Vygotsky is suggesting may be left at the school door. Sorry, I must have left my head on the subway yesterday; usually it's just my hat.
