A Dialectical Pedagogy of Revolt

Gramsci, Vygotsky, and the Egyptian Revolution


Brecht De Smet

In A Dialectical Pedagogy of RevoltBrecht De Smet offers an intellectual dialogue between the political theory of Italian Marxist Antonio Gramsci and the cultural psychology of Soviet thinker Lev Vygotsky within the framework of the Egyptian 25 January Revolution. Their encounter affirms the enduring need for a coherent theory of the revolutionary subject in the era of global capitalism, based on a political pedagogy of subaltern hegemony, solidarity, and reciprocal education.

Investigating the political and economic lineages and outcomes of the mass uprising of Tahrir Square, De Smet discusses the emancipatory achievements and hegemonic failures of the Egyptian workers’ and civil democratic movements from the perspective of their (in)ability to construct a genuine dialectical pedagogy.

duration bisection data of a single subject. The steepness of the psychometric response function reflects temporal sensitivity and can be characterized by the difference limen ( dl ), with smaller dl s (steeper slopes) indicating greater temporal sensitivity. The dl is usually defined as one half of the

note that participants have to choose one of the two response alternatives in every trial – if a judgment cannot be made with certainty, the subject is asked to choose the alternative that seems most appropriate or simply to guess an alternative. After each trial, the experimenter simply records

capacity of detecting differences in stimuli in preverbal infants. However, the understanding of the processes underlying habituation is a subject of debate ( Sirois & Mareschal 2002 ; Turk-Browne, Scholl, & Chun, 2008 ). Regarding the specific investigation of timing processes, one has to consider that

, participants abruptly lower their response rate again (called the “break-run-break” pattern). This pattern is shown in Figure 6.3 . In animal studies, where subjects emit many responses in a trial, experimenters need to apply change detection algorithms to estimate the trial time in which there is an abrupt

the stimulus is being presented, the probability for a same response increases whereas it decreases for a different response. The reason is as follows: short durations are no longer subject of choice when the stimulus presentation has passed those durations. Hence, the number of non-standards that

Desynchronization and Relative Coordination Under natural conditions of entrainment to a Zeitgeber of T=24-h, variations of the subject’s endogenous period (τ) may lead to different phases of entrainment, that are associated with chronotypes . In this sense, short endogenous periods τ often lead to early phases

. He showed that timing is highly adjustable but is subject to variability in produced intervals, which increases as the target interval lengthens. Moreover, he observed that the variability is not purely random but has a characteristic patterning. This includes distinct tendencies to short

, also known as the difference limen (DL), is half the range of SOAs over which the psychometric function in TOJ tasks increases from, say, 0.25 to 0.75. The three tasks can be used to estimate all of these measures, but many within-subjects studies involving two or more of the tasks have shown that

brief, this mechanism contains detectors/subunits (termed as multisensory correlation detectors) that receive sensory information from different senses of spatially aligned receptive fields. The detectors’ inputs are subjected to low-pass temporal filtering (i.e., temporal shifts are applied) and the
