Activity as Reality in Defining People and Activity as a Cognitive Construct. Activity and the Activity Approach to Understanding People: The Historical Meaning of the Crisis of Cultural-Activity Psychology
Asmolov, A. G.
Russian Education & Society, v57 n9 p731-756 2015
In this article we discuss the past, present, and future of the cultural activity approach as a methodology for integrating the humanities and natural sciences as well as psychotechnical and theoretical knowledge. It is suggested that the meaning of historical crisis of cultural activity-psychology consists in reflecting on the future prospects of its development, bridging the gap between classic and contemporary approaches. We demonstrate the socially constructed role of cultural activity methodology. [This article was translated by Kenneth Cargill.]
