Preston argues that fabric tradition primarily consists of actions of creation and use; she for that reason 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 simple account of functionality in fabric tradition is built by way of revising and lengthening latest theories of organic functionality to slot the cultural case. the following the changes are for the main half necessitated through detailed gains of functionality in fabric tradition.
These components of the venture are held jointly by way of a trio of overarching subject matters: the connection among person and society, the matter of centralized regulate, and creativity.
