[Xmca-l] Re: Fwd: Stalin & Vygotsky



I am re-posting the following  two paragraphs that Helena’s message expressed ....

Listening to Helena’s *ordinary phrase * such as when she says  [approaches cast aside] I am within a place where we hear the particular specific  word *approaches* is an *extraordinary* awakening moment indicating *movement* & *opening*.   Listening carefully to Helena’s word [approaches]  I hear also [passibility] & [carrying over] in Helena’s personal word using [approaches]....

Here is the context of 2 paragraphs

All academic disciplines in the USSR were characterised by lively debates
about their theoretical foundations in the 1920s, but came under
considerable pressure in the 1930s to come up with one position that would
be the orthodox marxist position with sometimes dire consequences for the
approaches cast aside.

In the case of psychology, it spent the decade in disarray. Vygotsky was
criticised at an official congress in 1930, which found all existing
schools of soviet psychology inadequate to the tasks of socialist
construction. I don't know if Vygotsky was actually banned though.

Thanks Ulvi, but Helena's message had made it through the list as well; I am not sure why she got that message.

Hi there.

I tried to reply to your list, but it got rejected, so perhaps you could
post it.

Best to you,
Helena

Hi to you all.

It's a long time since I conducted my research in this area.

All academic disciplines in the USSR were characterised by lively debates
about their theoretical foundations in the 1920s, but came under
considerable pressure in the 1930s to come up with one position that would
be the orthodox marxist position with sometimes dire consequences for the
approaches cast aside.

In the case of psychology, it spent the decade in disarray. Vygotsky was
criticised at an official congress in 1930, which found all existing
schools of soviet psychology inadequate to the tasks of socialist
construction. I don't know if Vygotsky was actually banned though.
