  1. Addressing the Moral Agency of Culturally Specific Care Perspectives.Chrystal S. Johnson - 2011 - Journal of Moral Education 40 (4):471-489.
    Cultural Historical Activity Theory (CHAT), as a culturally sensitive framework, realises the totality of caring in context. Few, if any, investigations into caring have articulated CHAT as a feasible mode of inquiry for inserting the cultural perspectives of both the researcher and the researched. This article elucidates CHAT as an intelligible and fruitful alternative to unearthing the moral agency of a culturally specific care outlook. Cultural Historical Activity Theory, as an epistemological orientation, brought into relief the complexities associated with agency, (...)

  • Epistemology of Transformative Material Activity: John Dewey's Pragmatism and Cultural-Historical Activity Theory.Reijo Miettinen - 2006 - Journal for the Theory of Social Behaviour 36 (4):389–408.
    The paper compares John Dewey's pragmatism and cultural-historical activity theory as epistemologies and theories of transformative material activity. For both of the theories, the concept of activity, the prototype of which is work, constitutes a basis for understanding the nature of knowledge and reality. This concept also implies for both theories a methodological approach of studying human behavior in which social experimentation and intervention play a central role. They also suggest that reflection and thought, mediated by language and semiotic artifacts, (...)

  • The Misery of Digital Organisations and the Semiotic Nature of IT.Peter Brödner - 2009 - AI and Society 23 (3):331-351.
    Contrary to common belief, IT systems often disappoint the expectations to increase productivity and flexibility of work and value creation processes. Moreover, most IT design and implementation projects still fail or burst time and cost budgets to a high extent. After presenting significant empirical evidence for these phenomena, the paper reflects on the reasons for their persistence by developing a semiotic perspective on the processes of dealing with computer artifacts in organisations. This semiotic view allows understanding the processes of designing, (...)

  • From Habituality to Change: Contribution of Activity Theory and Pragmatism to Practice Theories.Reijo Miettinen, Sami Paavola & Pasi Pohjola - 2012 - Journal for the Theory of Social Behaviour 42 (3):345-360.
    The new social theories of practice have been inspired by Wittgenstein's late philosophy, phenomenology and more recent sociological theories. They regard embodied skills and routinized, mostly unconscious habits as a key foundation of human practice and knowledge. This position leads to an overstatement of the significance of the habitual dimension of practice. As several critics have suggested this approach omits the problems of transformative agency and change of practices. In turn classical practice theories, activity theory and pragmatism have analyzed the (...)

  • A Trans-Actional Approach to Moral Development.Matthew Pamental - 2010 - Ethics and Education 5 (1):15-26.
    Among the latest trends in moral educational theory, several authors have suggested that a sociocultural approach to moral education is an improvement over the dominant cognitive-developmental and character educational paradigms. This approach draws its inspiration from the work of the Russian psychologist Lev Vygotsky. In the 1920s, Vygotsky attempted to reconstruct psychology to overcome the false dichotomy psychologists had posited between the individual and the environment. This genre of sociocultural theory has come to be known as activity theory. Despite its (...)

  • Measuring Consumer Engagement in Omnichannel Retailing: The Mobile In-Store Experience (MIX) Index.Charles Aaron Lawry & Anita D. Bhappu - 2021 - Frontiers in Psychology 12.
    We draw insights from Activity Theory within the field of human-computer interaction to quantitatively measure a mobile in-store experience, which includes the suite of shopping activities and retail services that a consumer can engage in when using their mobile device in brick-and-mortar stores. We developed and validated a nine-item, formative MIX index using survey data collected from fashion consumers in the United States, United Kingdom, Germany, and France. As survey measures of consumer engagement in omnichannel retailing using a mobile device, (...)
