With this article, we intend to present the theoretical and methodological framework of the work developed by Yves Clot.We will start by briefly situating the anchor points of his research and intervention proposals, as well as the goals he aims to reach.We can, then, state that the author, affiliated with the Russian school of psychology, has developed a group of studies with the purpose of identifying the relations established between subjectivity and work activity. His research studies start with real work situation analysis aimed at its transformation, which, assuming a historical and cultural perspective, implies understanding the developmental history of workers´ activities. In this intervention, the author tries to articulate the real and done, the individual and the collective, mobilizing methodologies that privilege the language mediation and of the others in order to (re)construct the professional rules valorised by its professionals. It is in the (re)construction of this professional genre that the workers encounter the difficulties that they must manage and respect, but it also becomes a resource for action itself.In Yves Clot´s perspective, this is the only way to guarantee the psychological function of work.
