This is important in extending rational thinking in designing interaction. While none of the approaches is insignificant, none provides an exhaustive coverage of the entire field. Likewise, individuals, researchers, and designers have different life and work experiences, and thus they bring different intuitive assumptions to science (Saariluoma 1997) and a number of slightly different approaches to HTI, which Kuhn (1962) calls paradigms or models of thought. Is it possible to understand the field of HTI research and design in terms of competing paradigms?
