Exploration of Praxis through Personal and Professional Journey: Implications
Singh, Navin Kumar
Journal for Critical Education Policy Studies, v10 n2 p418-443 Oct 2012
This paper explores the meaning of praxis through the personal and professional journey of the author, emphasizing the thoughts of major proponents of praxis and their contributions in the field. What emerges through this exploration is that praxis is not knowing but putting the knowing into action for the betterment of all humankind through practical judgment. This paper leads readers through the author's reflection on the diverse socioeconomic, cultural and linguistic backgrounds that shape his praxis journey, and ends with implications in the field. In light of different interpretations of praxis, the author suggests embracing reflective practices and calls for paradigmatic shifts in existing educational practices for social justice and equity.
