Abstract: Current approaches to information systems (IS) are roughly based on technical, scientific or formal aspects which miss the human nature of IS or, otherwise in organisational and social aspects highlighting the human but missing concrete implementations. This result too often in IS failures. We think the problem relies in an inadequate paradigm to deal with the human element and we propose a new philosophical stance – human relativism – to overcome the problems felt. This new approach will lead to a new way of developing IS that will be human centred. In this sense we propose also as a possible way to apply this new paradigm a human action oriented perspective that could be used for information systems development. Therefore, human-action is analysed as well and a comprehensive multi-dimensional holistic view of it is given, followed by a particular choice of a selected group of dimensions suggested for use in information system development according to human relativism.
