Re: [xmca] Activity and interpsychological aspects of CHAT
Christine, I think Winnicott's idea was fine as far as it went. He was a
child psychoanlyst. It's use as a metaphor is more questionable. This is
a problem for me in how Critical Theorists use the findings of
psychologists - as metaphor.
Can you explain, Christine, what you meant by "'comunication' in social
relations as outside activity or project" - why and how would people
comunicate if they had no common project or activity? Is that in the
"not yet" and "being drawn towards a need to participate"?
And yes, I am sure you are 100% correct, that "'global' ideological
causes" displace local development transformation." Nothing can be more
destructive than such "global ideological" inervention. Can you give us

Separation of emotional and rational is not helpful, and Fernando

Also his article brought out how much attention is given to
internalising, but perhaps not 'externalising' difference .
I was taken by the discussion of 'communication ' in social relations
as outside activity or project, when encountering on-going activity
in being drawn towards a need to participate would seem to be a
moment when expression of alterity is already a social relation, not
yet motivated in activity, and not yet designing an imagined goal, a
social relation which calls for externalising through personal sense,
in emotionally oriented and also historical dispositional 'meeting'.
My predicament is my understanding is that 'global' ideological
causes displace local developmental transformation without such an
understanding, relevant in sustainable developmental intervention.
I'm struggling in my predicament to situate creativity in
