Informing Information Science: The Case for Activity Theory.
Spasser, Mark A.
Journal of the American Society for Information Science, v50 n12 p1136-38 Oct 1999
A new approach to information science, activity theory emphasizes the centrality of practice as doing and activity and foregrounds setting and context as essential orienting concepts. It can provide information science with a rich, unifying, and heuristically valuable vocabulary and conceptual framework that will facilitate the continual betterment of practice and the secure transferability and cumulation of knowledge.
