[Xmca-l] Re: RES: Re: Child Development: Understanding a Cultural Perpsective



David,
I was reading through the first part of your “The Great Globe”. Are you familiar with Wundt and does his work resonate with your focus on the simultaneous and the sequential in narrative and dialog? I don’t have time now to explain why I ask, but will be back later. I see that Martin has responded to your post with the link to “The Great Globe”.
