How Activity Systems Evolve: Making / Saving Salmon in British Columbia
Lee, Yew-Jin; Roth, Wolff-Michael
Mind, Culture, and Activity, v15 n4 p296-321 Oct 2008
The purpose of this article is to describe the history of a state-sponsored salmon enhancement project in British Columbia and to explicate the development of the former using cultural historical activity theory. We make thematic the notion of inner contradictions, which express themselves outwardly as a function of both quantitative and qualitative changes. We propose also that the Marxian notion of change of quality from quantity can fruitfully unpack how these dialectical units push activity systems forward. (Contains 1 table and 26 footnotes.)
