ARIZTIA, Tomás. Social practice theory: particularities, possibilities and limits. Cinta moebio [online]. 2017, n.59, pp.221-234. ISSN 0717-554X.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0717-554X2017000200221.

This article presents a critical review of Social Practices Theory, a label that group works that consider the practice as the fundamental component of the social world. The article discusses and presents in a synthetic way a set of recent theoretical works associated to this theory. Social Practices Theory is described as an attempt to avoid the traditional dualism of social theory based on the concept of practice which, following the work of Elizabeth Shove, is defined as the intersection of materialities, meaning and practical knowledge. The article discusses how Social Practices Theory accounts for the dynamics of social change by focusing on examining the trajectories of practices and their components. It illustrates the possibilities and limitations of this theory by describing how Social Practices Theory has been used in environmental sociology and sustainable consumption.

Palavras-chave : social practice; theory; dualism; posthumanist; pragmatism.
