[Xmca-l] Re: [Fwd: Request from Karger publishing on their 125th anniversary]

Looks like Janet never wrote anything under 500pp so it would have to be an excerpt. Luria's "Mind and Brain" (1964) is only 11 pages. So far as I know it has not been translated into English.

Tome III: L'organisation du temps. Paris, Éditions Chahine, 1928, pp. 419 à 624. That's more than 100 pages, so that is probably too much.

The only work of Janet's that has been published in English is a series of lectures he gave in the US. According to the Soviet editors of LSVCW, although Vygotsky rarely quoted Janet, there is reason to believe he was influenced by him. These editors point to AN Leontyev's 1931 article on memory as drawing on Janet's work as mentioned above.

My vote would be for some of the papers referred to by LSV and his colleagues between roughly 1925-1934 which are not in English. Anyone able to identify things they would like
to read? I will try to go back and check out my own wish list.

If people could nominate candidates on xmca so other could see, it might facilitate.
We could then send the Kargers and Larry a collective wish list.

        Dear Members of the HD Editorial Board -

This year marks the 125th anniversary of Karger Publishing. As many of you
        know, Karger is one of the few remaining family owned scientific
        publishers.  They have been remarkably supportive of Human
        Development.  I
        recently received the request below from Gabriella Karger that
        is connected
        with the activities she is coordinating to mark this special
        Please take a moment to read her request, and send any
        suggestions for such
        highly significant research papers to me, so that I may gather
        your suggestions and send them to her.

        With best regards,


        Dear Professor Nucci,

        Whilst the year is still young, I am contacting you as Editor
        of Human
        Development, for your input and advice. As you may already
        know, Karger
        Publishers will celebrate its 125th anniversary this year. To
        mark this
        occasion, we would like to attempt something a little out of
        the ordinary.
        When my great-grand father founded the publishing house,
        English wasn't the
        scientific “lingua franca†. This is a relatively recent
        phenomenon, many
        great scientists published their work in other languages. Good
are often either unavailable or difficult to locate. Being able to understand the meaning of what the original author wrote and this
        often-cited foundations upon which modern work is built, is
        surely of vital

        During our anniversary year, we would like to put together a
        of the most significant scientific work that was not
        originally published
        in English and make a corresponding collection of translations
        available to
        the scientific community on our website. May we kindly appeal
        to you to
        help us with this? The challenge is to identify the most
        important articles
        in the whole field of biomedical science. *If you would let us
        know a
        handful of the most significant papers in your field of
        expertise not
        available in English *(naming author, title and wherever
        possible, the
        source), we will check whether a translation of suitable
        quality already
        exists, look into the copyright issue and arrange to have an
        translation made if none is available. Mendel's pioneering
        work (Versuche
        über Pflanzen-Hybriden) dating from 1865/6 is a suitable
        starting point in

        We do hope that you can participate with us together in what
        hopefully prove to be an interesting project. Raising the
        profile of
        milestones in science and making these more accessible, should
        benefit all.
