I have not being dedicated to the systematic study of Engeström's approach
to activity (activity theory as work-ATW?).

I do not see Leontiev's AT or Engeström's ATW as things that should be
separated from or put out of Vygotsky's original theoretical-methodologic

My current understanding is that CHAT would be considered as a broader field
in which Vygotsky's cultural-historical theory of human development,
Leontiev's AT, Engeströms' ATW live side by side in a confortable way.

Am I wrong?
