YES! Roots! Теория деятельности stretches back to 1920s Russia. While somewhat similar to studies of “workplace efficiency” in the USA and England, what strongly sets this apart is that the health of the human was paramount, not just worker efficiency. Ergonomics is also related but this actually leads into the “situated action” 1987 and the various embodied cognition, distributed mind, and other distinct but similar notion of the environment and the intentions and the actors and objects all creating context as the activity is enacted. But this is definitely a start to it. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Activity_theory
