When explaining philosophical questions of purposeful activity the author takes account of both biological and social, economic, cultural factors. Their neglecting goes in danger of mechanicism or reductionism on one hand, on the other hand of idealism and mysticism. In the purposeful activity of Man the use of instruments and language as means of communication are very important. However, the significance of language cannot be overestimated and conceived loose from the context of all social life.
