An Interdisciplinary Theory of Activity
by Andy Blunden

In this volume, Andy Blunden  develops an original analysis of Cultural Historical Activity Theory, the psychology originating from Lev Vygotsky. Tracing the roots of this theory from Goethe,  Hegel, and Marx,  the author draws out the principles with which Vygotsky developed a theory of the mind that transcended the problems of the mind-body dualism.  Blunden  follows the efforts of later members of the Vygotsky School to resolve outstanding problems in Vygotsky's  work. This includes a critical appropriation of Leontyev's Activity Theory. The outcome is a concept of activity which transcends the division between individual and social domains in human sciences.
