For those of us who are CHAT impaired, is there a handy link to a worked
out version of this analysis? I remember the broad details (e.g., the
activity of the beaters make no sense unless the collective object of
killing the prey is taken into account).

Subject: Intentionality and Semiotics: Tribal hunt

So, what I was thinking was this: If one wants to understand how the
theoretical concepts of semiotics and activity theory might contribute
each other, then a semiotic analysis of a situation that has already
well analysed through activity theory might make it possible to better
understand semiotics in relation to activity theory, and vice versa.
thought experiment of the tribal hunt is paradigmatic of activity
theory, and
might offer some insight. Perhaps a semiotician has already addressed
problem and can offer a word or reference?
