Preston argues that fabric tradition basically consists of actions of construction and use; she consequently adopts an action-theoretic beginning for a philosophy of fabric tradition. half 1 illustrates this origin via a critique, revision, and extension of current philosophical theories of motion. half 2 investigates a salient characteristic of fabric tradition itself—its performance. A easy account of functionality in fabric tradition is developed via revising and lengthening current theories of organic functionality to slot the cultural case. right here the changes are for the main half necessitated via particular beneficial properties of functionality in fabric tradition.
These elements of the undertaking are held jointly through a trio of overarching subject matters: the connection among person and society, the matter of centralized keep watch over, and creativity.
