Practice mind-ed orders
ByTHEODORE R. SCHATZKI
Pages 14

This essay defends two principal theses: (1) that social order is established within the sway of social practices, and (2) that mind is a central dimension of this ‘process.’ The first claim is a large one and cannot be fully substantiated here. It primarily serves as a context for developing the second thesis. The path to the latter end, moreover, leads through an analysis of the organization of practices. It is the role that a socially constituted mind plays in structuring practices that certifies practices as the place of social order.
