Another dot in the blogosphere?


Posted on: February 10, 2019

Praxis is the combination of theory and practice, but not in the manner illustrated in the tweet below.

The tweet is ha-ha funny and might provide some insights into idiocy in real life, but accepting this as a given can have serious consequences. No one wants a lab for pharmaceuticals, energy storage, or DNA repair to say “nothing works and no one knows why”.

Praxis is about theory informing practice and vice versa. For these to happen, anyone who claims to have expertise must be well-read, and be a reflective and critical practitioner.

Beng well-read means keeping up with the latest theories and research. Being a reflective and critical practitioner is giving back to that pool of knowledge. Doing these avoid the situation where “nothing works and no one knows why”.
