Re: [xmca] Teaching on the Emotions

Words from Achilles,

"notes: If marxists.org cannot share it - I can put in my personal page, by the way. Vygotsky is not for comercial capitalist interests, is not a private property - his work belongs to humanity, everything different would be a complete absurd."
I am so amazed and stunned at these words that I have so little to say....this is beyond anything I have understood to date.....I am very sorry for what has happened, in my understanding....Just a quick note....The Vygotsky family in Russia, to my knowledge has never received any money for the works of Vygotsky in any language...Achilles, and his words of "capitalist interests," regarding the article he is interested in, are interesting...but, I am totally confused....Is he interested in helping the Vygotsky family? or, what is he interested in? I am in a total cloud of confusion.......
My good wishes to many of you,

It is not listed on marxists.org, and just circulated on xmca. If anyone complains, I will delete it from marxists.org instantly. It cannot be cited as at that location. It is just for sharing among members of this list. The source information is in the Document Properties.

Vygotsky, Volume 6 (in English), I am confused with what is happening....sorry, I am busy, so my question is perhaps answered.....I thought we were receiving a new article from Vygotsky on emotions, something new Achilles found. It sounded wonderful. And, in the title, I was still excited about something new: The Teaching About Emotions Historical-Psychological Studies Lev Semenovich Vygotsky (1931-1933). Now, it looks like it is only a copy of Volume 6 of the Collected Works, pp. 71-235; however, this reference is not listed in the information that was sent out initially (later, yes), nor is it posted on Marxists.org. Then, did Achilles change some of the wording of the text? I just don't have the time to compare....Of course, I am assuming anyone can scan and send out chapters of The Collected Works of L. S. Vygotsky…..I am assuming that the entire Collected

Sorry. Perhaps I do not have the full picture….I am, however, assuming that Achilles did not take the translated material in Vol. 6, in English, and change the wording of that material. Correct? Thanks. Yours in amazement,
