This chapter, which focuses on explaining the concept of flow experience on the basis of an activity approach to attention, gives a description of the concepts of psychological theory of activity along with a discussion and expansion of its fundamental components. It also describes the theory of attention, proposes that the nature of attention be used as a function of activity, explains the flow phenomenon on the basis of the earlier findings, and establishes the evidence regarding consistency of these findings. The findings in the chapter reveal that a human activity becomes complex when actions are initiated differently within its structure
