Each lexical term is mean­ ingful within a Sprachspiel (or "language game"); but a language game is meaningful only if construed in the context of a given Lebensform (or "form of life"). In one familiar American sense, for example, we understand the mean­ ing of the word strike only if we are familiar with the game of baseball: 60 Stephen Toulmin "Playing baseball" is the form of life that provides the background against which the word strike has this meaning.

The latter is included in intersubjective relations and can be understood only in this context. Toward a new rationality I think it is clear that these features of interhuman communica­ tion have not only not been investigated by those who elaborated activity theory up to now but have also been underestimated.
