Jump to: navigation, search

Abstract artefacts are a class of artefacts taking a primarily abstract form, such as language, cultures, social institutes and arguably society itself. They aim to generate and govern dispersed events, and through this to convert a dispersed collective of speakers, behaviours or social actors into a semblance of a system.
