My goodness Steve! you've really caught me there! It is quite wrong to make
a gesture towards "some more recent Marxists" and then never explain what I
meant. And my memory of what I had in mind is not too good either.

But I think what I meant is simply the series of writers, mostly Russians,
who continued work in the CHAT tradition - AR Luria, AA Leontyev,
Brushlinsky, Rubenshtein, Ilyenkov, Mikhailov, Lektorsky as well as
Wertsch, Cole and so on, but I am saying that I am not going to go into all
that (1. not qualified, 2. off the point), but just use these two "founding
fathers" to mark out the territory. I don't think I had anyone in mind
outside of the CHAT tradition.
