Cette nouvelle approche ‘technologique’ du style en archéologie s’est constituée partiellement sur un rejet de la théorie de l’échange d’informations proposée par Wobst (voir par exemple Lemonnier 1986, 1992 ; Pfaffenberger 1992 ; Dietler et Herbich 1998 ; Hegmon 1998 ; Dobres 2000). Celle-ci est critiquée pour son caractère anhistorique et fondamentalement fonctionnaliste, les individus paraissant opérer une reproduction mécanique et non réflexive des systèmes culturels (Hegmon 1998, 265). Dans les études céramiques, l’accent mis sur la technologie a permis d’aborder les artefacts dans une perspective plus globale, à travers l’examen de la totalité du processus de manufacture : la chaîne opératoire.
