The additional material is wonderful, not to be missed (my favorite is
the Bruner/Sachs piece). I ordered my copy from Erlbaum and it arrived
via UPS in dreadful condition. I sent a bilious email to Erlbaum, fully
expecting the usual run around (contact the shipper, send the book back
at my expense, etc). Instead a fresh and undamaged copy arrived 3 days
later via USPS.

One regret is that Cole and Levitin did not talk more about their
personal interactions with Alexander Romanovich. Mike, how did you get
from " Search behavior: a correction procedure for three-choice
probability learning" in 1962 (Mike's dissertation at Indiana
University) to analyzing the data from the Central Asia studies a few
years later? Have you written about this anywhere?

Here is a bit of good news about the Luria book thanks to all the
you have provided.

Erlbaum was told by Amazon: We are waiting for more inventory to come
We have sold out of all previously ordered inventory at an unexpected
and are awaiting the arrival of more units, hence the current

Also, anyone whose book arrived without the DVD is having a new books
DVD sent by Erlbaum directly.

And, there are even comments/reviews appearing.

Meantime, we had an interesting Class meeting on mediational theories of
mind and more will be appearing in that
discussion for those interested. The issue of the social context of what
people wrote, and for/against whom they
were writing, is a theme that appears to be staying with the class....
Apropos of the DVD,
