Though information systems use has been much discussed since at least the 1980's, much of it in terms of Davis; famous Technology Acceptance Modle, the discussion still leaves much to be desired. This paper identifies five paradigms under which discussion takes place, and finds problems with all of them. It then calls upon Dooyeweerd's philosophy to provide a framework for understanding IS use, into which all of the paradigms can be situated. It shows how Dooyeweerd can affirm, critique and enrich each paradigm and, perhaps, provide a more satisfactory understanding of IS use.
