[xmca] Re: Vygotsky and Wund (asking for help)

Hi Achilles-

A short version of Volkerpsychologie exists in English. It is a late summary
of the many volumes he
wrote in German. There is an excellent discussion of early ideas of
volkerpsychologie available at lchc.ucsd.edu in a Newsletter article by
Krewer and Jahoda. Jahoda subsequently wrote more about
this in his book on psychology and anthropology.
