Theoria versus Praxis?
Zur Entwicklung eines Prinzipienwissens im Bereich der Praxis in Antike und Spätantike
[Theory versus Practice?]
Aims and Scope
Typically, theory and practice are regarded as polarities. Yet is this an appropriate perspective? In a survey of the philosophical and theological traditions of antiquity and late antiquity, this study traces key moments in the development of principles in the domain of practice, and comes to a surprising conclusion: theory and practice are not opposites, but instead, are fundamentally interrelated and based on a common principle.
