PRACTICAL KNOWLEDGE VERSUS KNOWLEDGE AS PRACTICE
Languages of publication
The main thesis of this essay is that practice is superior to a 'theoretical vs. practical' distinction. In this sense, every sort of knowledge is essentially 'practical'; so-called 'theoretical' knowledge is an historically overemphasised borderline example of the practical. Based mostly on Wittgenstein's view, the author shall gradually refine an opposition between theoretical and practical knowledge by analysing some related dualisms on an active, processual, communicative and applicative concept of knowledge. Then he will provide some arguments as to why knowledge as a practical matter in this sense should be seen as, both logically and temporally, prior to the distinction.
