Diagrams are handy ways to understand things with few words. I like to scaffold, with the clever use of diagrams, the public’s view of modern soceity using Vygotsky’s idea of the Zone of Proximal development. Vygotsky was a crazy cat. He spent most of his time larking around on building sites and not enough time being a psychologist. He became obsessed with builders, and more importantly, scaffolding. We’ve all been there. we’ve all known that desperate feeling on a saturday night when we find ourselves intoxicated, and locked in a steely embrace with an item related to the construction industry. When will society learn? NOW!
Here, I present to you a Venn Diagram depicting attitudes towards the industrial revolution’s major innovations. As you can see, the majority of society own a ped-egg. Fewer own a JML flameless candle, and even fewer own a Rap’tou. However, a large amount of Rap’Tou owners own BOTH a ped-egg and a JML Flameless candle. This shows Rap’tou owners, whilst being a minority, are the most forward thinking of folk. The diagram also clearly depicts that neither Ped-Egg owners, JML Flameless candle owners and Rap’Tou owners DO NOT own the Ottoman Empire.
I trust that has cleared things up for you. Any questions?
