If the ontogenesis of language in any way reflects its phylogenesis, then Vygotsky's remark is pertinent to the question of the role of imaginability in language evolution: "The child prefers the real apple to the imaginary one," yet "it is the imagined apple that will play the crucial role in linguistic meaning" (Vygotsky 1987a, p.
To say that emotions are historical means to say that they do not have a fixed and immutable nature and that they do not belong to an innate nature of individuals, but that, as part of the psychic life, equally to this one, they are subordinated to the process of historical and cultural development and, therefore, change, are transformed along the phylogenesis, the ontogenesis and the sociogenesis.
In natural deaths, the pathological mechanism of the terminal state is gradual, occurring in time, starting from the death of a cell and including all of the organs--the brain included, because it is most susceptible to lack of oxygen; the layers 35 of the cortex are destroyed first, these being the most recent structures in terms of phylogenesis.
