Institute of Psychology of Russian Academy of Sciences, Moscow


The study examines the contradictions in the basic definitions of justice as a phenomenon of a team work, their heterogeneity and relativity. The analysis has revealed justice as the main employee’s motive to participate effectively in team efforts as well as the integrative mechanism of divided labor.

The analysis enables to define justice as activity attitude. That makes possible the integration of heterogeneous definitions on the one hand and unlocks the potential of activity approach on the other hand.

Key words: distributive justice; procedural justice; interpersonal justice; relativity of justice; activity approach; social rationality; human-sizednessattitude.
