Chapter Summary

This index presents a list of terms and concepts that occur in the book Collaborative Projects: An Interdisciplinary Study. The book talks about two aspects of the concept of 'project' which suggest transformative effect on Activity Theory. The first is the element of time already mentioned, and the second is the concept of the object of activity which is quite different for so-called generation of Activity Theory. These two problems are closely interconnected, but before turning to the problem of the object of activity the author considers the problems posed by the new unit of activity for developing first, the internal dynamics of projects and secondly, the interaction between projects, which arise by the reconceptualization of norms and rules, instruments, subject, object and division of labour consequent upon the change of conception of the unit itself.

Keywords: Activity Theory; collaborative projects; division of labour; interdisciplinary study
