Questions of Practice in Philosophy and Social Theory, Hardback Book

Questions of Practice in Philosophy and Social Theory Hardback

Edited by Anders Buch, Theodore Schatzki

Part of the Routledge Studies in Contemporary Philosophy series



Humanistic theory for more than the past 100 years is marked by extensive attention to practice and practices.

Two prominent streams of thought sharing this focus are pragmatism and theories of practice.

This volume brings together internationally prominent theorists to explore key dimensions of practice and practices on the background of parallels and points of contact between these two traditions.

The contributors all are steeped in one or both of these streams and well-known for their work on practice.

The collected essays explore three important themes: what practice and practices are, normativity, and transformation.

The volume deepens understanding of these three practice themes while strengthening appreciation of the parallels between and complementariness of pragmatism and practice theory.
