Re: [xmca] [ISCAR-ANNOUNCE] Sydney-2014 ISCAR Congress Website now open!

Here is the article by Jussi attached;
Martin, I am intrigued by the notion of time-consciousness implicit in this
article. The understanding of historical duration as *epochs*, *eras*,
*phases*, *periods* as dynamic process.
Mike mentions this has become the canonical understanding of vygotsky and
the chat school.
This way of exploring epistemological barriers [frameworks] and
epistemological breaks [openings or gaps] AS epochal processes I find
presents fascinating narratives through time.

A clear distinction in the article is the two versions of cultural
historical theory. In the 1st instrumental version signs ARE psychological
TOOLS. Signs and tools are more similar or equivalent. In the early work
the unit of analysis was *object-oriented* action mediated by cultural
*tools and signs* [instrumental tools and signs that get grasped, used, and
put down]. Mediation BY social relations and OTHERS was not theoretically
integrated in the 1st instrumental mediational triangle.
