Synopsis: Theorizing Praxis investigates the theory/practice relation in philosophy, particularly within the fields of hermeneutics, ethics, and the philosophy of education. In so doing, it uncovers important areas of common ground between hermeneutical and pragmatist philosophy. Paul Fairfield defends a «practice-immanent» method of theorizing, which is indebted to both traditions and aims to explicitly articulate the spontaneously emergent constitutional dynamics of social practices rather than continue the project of transcendental theory construction.
About the Author: The Author: Paul Fairfield holds a Ph.D. in philosophy from McMaster University (Hamilton, Ontario, Canada). He is the author of Moral Selfhood in the Liberal Tradition: The Politics of Individuality and coauthor (with Gary B. Madison and Ingrid Harris) of Is There a Canadian Philosophy? Reflections on the Canadian Identity. He has been published extensively in scholarly journals in the fields of hermeneutics, ethics, and political philosophy.
