Questions of Practice in Philosophy and Social Theory

Bogen er et resultat af et samarbejde, som Anders Buch har med Theodore R. Schatzki fra University of Kentucky. Schatzki er en central skikkelse i praksisteori, og han har igennem nogen år fungeret som Obel-professor på instituttet, og blev i foråret udnævnt til æresdoktor ved det humanistiske fakultet på AAU.
 
I bogen har Buch og Schatzki samlet en række prominente internationale filosoffer og sociologer med henblik på udforske praksisser og praktikker i lyset af praksisteori og amerikansk pragmatisme. Bogens tema er opsummeret i bogens omslagstekst:

Humanistic theory for more than the past 100 years is marked by extensive attention to practice and practices. Two prominent streams of thought sharing this focus are pragmatism and theories of practice. This volume brings together internationally prominent theorists to explore key dimensions of practice and practices on the background of parallels and points of contact between these two traditions. The contributors all are steeped in one or both of these streams and well-known for their work on practice. The collected essays explore three important themes: what practice and practices are, normativity, and transformation. The volume deepens understanding of these three practice themes while strengthening appreciation of the parallels between and complementariness of pragmatism and practice theory.
