Chapter Summary

Peace activists use lock-ons to join themselves together by the arms to enhance the power of their passive resistance. This chapter identifies a number of theoretical approaches to objects of this sort. It first identifies a relationship between the lock-on and design theory, and considers what sort of ?thing' a lock-on might be and what frameworks exist that might help to understand it. The chapter then considers whether work in Archaeology may help to understand the relationship between the lock-on and its ?designers'. Next, it focuses on work in Sociology that takes cultural practices to be the ?site of the social' and which acknowledges the significance of objects in such practices. The chapter intends to point up principles which may be applied to designs that work as part of other practices and which might facilitate changes in those practices and to identify further work on the lock-on.
