   The problem is, IMHO, that once we define the relevant structure as
   inter-individual and intra-individual, we have moved away from the
   insights which have given the CHAT tradition its great strength. This
   posing of the problem makes the individual the basic unit of analysis
   and discounts the existence of mediation (i.e. the "CH" part of CHAT)
   at a fundamental level. Personally, I think this is the wrong way to
   go to find a solution to the objectivist tendencies in CHAT.
