It surprised me when I looked back that I have not written a blog on praxis before. I was first introduced to it when I studied TU812 – the module that also led me to start blogging – so it is interesting that I haven’t ever used the blog to articulate my understanding of it.
I’ve arrived at that point now because I am currently doing a lot of reading on practice – or more precisely theories of practice. You don’t go very far in that literature without starting to come across the word praxis. Sometimes practice and praxis are used a little interchangeably, sometimes they are referred to as ‘practice/praxis’, but there are places where praxis and its distinctive meaning are explored in more detail.
