The Practice Turn in Contemporary Theory
Theodore R. Schatzki, Karin Knorr-Cetina, Eike von Savigny
Routledge, 2001 - Philosophy - 239 pages
"The essays focus on three overall themes: the character and establishment of social order, the psychological basis of human activity, and contemporary posthumanist challenges. Philosophers such as Wittgenstein and Heidegger who have been influential in the shaping of practice theory are also discussed. In examining these themes and thinkers, the essays document how practice theory stands opposed to prominent modes of thought such as individualism, intellectualism, structuralism, systems theory, and many strains of humanism and poststructuralism." "The Practice Turn in Contemporary Theory is for all those interested in the role that practices play in our lives and across a large number of disciplines including philosophy, sociology, science studies, cultural theory, history and anthropology."--BOOK JACKET.
