This book depicts in detail the rise and fall of a remarkable phenomenon in Soviet Marxism: 'The Activity Approach.'

This book presents to Western readers, for the first time, a current in late Soviet philosophy known as the '‘activity approach’. Though lesser known than its counterpart in cultural-historical psychology (the thinking of Vygotsky and Leontyev), the activity approach became an intellectual mode, leading to several different interpretations of human activity and challenging Marxist-Leninist orthodoxy.
