  • Activity Theory: Introduction & Background

  • Activity Theory (AT) is a complex, holistic, psychological paradigm that both encompasses, and moves beyond, Western psychological and systems approaches such as cybernetics and information-processing cognitive psychology. In contrast with the stimulus-response models of Behaviorism, AT argues that a subject's relationship with the objective world is always mediated by activity. People do not simply passively absorb, and react to, stimuli from the 'outer world'; they actively explore and transform their material and social environments. In this active process, people produce and reproduce culture and consciousness.
