Preston argues that fabric tradition basically includes actions of construction and use; she hence adopts an action-theoretic beginning for a philosophy of fabric tradition. half 1 illustrates this starting place via a critique, revision, and extension of present philosophical theories of motion. half 2 investigates a salient function of fabric tradition itself—its performance. A easy account of functionality in fabric tradition is built by way of revising and lengthening current theories of organic functionality to slot the cultural case. the following the changes are for the main half necessitated by means of specified beneficial properties of functionality in fabric tradition.
These elements of the venture are held jointly via a trio of overarching subject matters: the connection among person and society, the matter of centralized regulate, and creativity.
