As a part of wider studies in epistemology of social sciences, the course is focused on examination of social practice as one of the most important issues in sociological epistemology. The concept of social practice is situated in the middle of two contrasted epistemological and ontological positions: those of methodological individualism and methodological holism mediated through elisionism and methodological dualism (social realism). In that sense, social practice attempts to bridge a gap between mentioned positions. During the course, the students will acquire knowledge on different views on social practice present in sociological tradition. They will develop analytical and critical thinking on this particular epistemological issue as well as will upgrade their knowledge on epistemology of sociology in general.
