Re: [xmca] activity and reification

Maybe I am in error because I don't know what people mean by "discourse"? I take "discourse" (in its current philosophical usage) to mean something like "institution." That is to say, a stable and /relatively/ closed pattern of meanings in a language community. Is that right? You think that is what Vygotsky meant by "word"?
