Processes, Life, and the Practice Plenum

(p.79) 6 Processes, Life, and the Practice Plenum
Institutions and Organizations

Theodore R. Schatzki

Oxford University Press

Process approaches form a minoritarian vocation in contemporary social thought. The concept of process is regularly used in unconsidered ways that are continuous with untutored uses outside academic texts. But there is relatively little detailed engagement with, or focused conceptual development centered on, the concept—despite a recent burst of process analyses, above all in organization studies and in corners of sociology and geography that engage with pragmatism, Bergson, or Deleuze. Chapter 6 examines whether lives, practices, and the practice plenum embrace or are themselves processes. To explore this issue, Schatzki draws on a slew of prominent notions of process and work with Heidegger’s and Mead’s ideas about action and life as well as his own conception of practices.

Keywords:   process, practice plenum, Heidegger, Mead, practice
