THE 'PRACTICE TURN' IN THE CONTEMPORARY SOCIO-HUMAN SCIENCES
Languages of publication
The paper provides an overview of the current situation in the socio-human sciences, which is characterised by attempts to overcome traditional one-sided approaches and look for new alternatives. One of the latest alternatives to traditional approaches in the philosophy and methodology of the social sciences is the 'practice turn'. It is the turn to another, non-traditional approach to practice but also to Aristotelian 'phronesis'. The author gives an account of three main tenets of this turn with reference to both ancient Greek and modern conceptions of practice.
