Steve & Sophie-- My guess is that the various kinds of contradictions need
to be treated as abstractions such that in each case one must "rise to the
concrete" in identifying and working with them in specific circumstances.

Methodologically, a huge challenge is to be able to document each of these
aspects of activity which are in play simultaneously. And this is especially
true if one is engaged with the activity system oneself, as in intervention
research wnere the doing seems always to run down the documenting and there
is rarely time/support left over for analysis!
