Human Mind in Human Society.
Furth, Hans G.
Human Development, v39 n5 p264-68 Sep-Oct 1996
Claims that mind and mental objects form a societal mental structure enabling children to assimilate the society and become co-constructing members. Cites evidence that competence to create mental objects, symbols, and meanings separated from action is the evolutionary evolved human capacity for society and culture. Vygotsky's "natural" line of development refers to the always presupposed general human competence. (Author/KB)
