I have read something from an author and I think I would like to use part of his idea in my own context. But how should I cite the author so that it isn't misleading? Let me give an example.
Suppose I have read this and wanted to use this idea from Dunne & Raby in my article:
Critical design uses designed artifacts as an embodied critique or commentary on consumer culture.
Since my article is written in my own context, I may end up using the sentence this way:
The design of Product X is an embodied critique on the consumer culture.
Now, if I were cite Dunne & Raby:
The design of Product X is an embodied critique on the consumer culture (Dunne & Raby, 1999).
This may appear as if Dunne & Raby said that Product X is an embodied critique on the consumer culture when they were actually commenting about something more general.
I can't put quotes either since I'm lifting it entirely from its original statement.
Would how I have cited the author correct in the form of APA citation? If not, how should I cite it so that it would be clearer?
