  1. Objectification and the Labour of the Negative in the Origin of Human Thinking: A Response to Chris Drain.Kyrill Potapov - 2021 - Social Epistemology Review and Reply Collective.

It’s my claim that Vygotsky’s reliance on directives de facto keeps his account stuck at Tomasello's level of individual intentionality. Directive speech acts feature prominently in Tomasello’s developmental story as well. But Tomasello has the benefit of accounting for a functional differentiation in directive (...)
