An Intricate Fabric: Understanding the Rationality of Practice
Dunne, Joseph
Pedagogy, Culture and Society, v13 n3 p367-390 2005
This article provides an account of a "neo-Aristotelian" conception of practice. It introduces this account through an analysis of internal and external goods of practices. It then delineates a crucial distinction between practical and technical rationality and grounds this distinction in an analysis of the priority of "material" over "method" in different domains of activity. It concludes by addressing some possible misgivings about the account and by tracing some of its most significant implications for the relationship of theory and practice. (Contains 19 notes.)
