A need for pragmatic conceptualisation and theorizing in the information systems field is acknowledged. Instead of -importing- completed action theories from reference disciplines an alternative approach is preferred. In order to arrive at seamless theorizing in IS, a theoretical synthesis of different action aspects is developed well adapted to the IS field. The theoretical roots and some essentials of this adapted theoretical synthesis - socio-instrumental pragmatism - are described in the paper.
