Problems and Methods, Second Edition
Chapter 7: Practices as socially sustained
Practices are facilitated and sustained by a technological, normative and discursive process of infrastructuring that is accountable to a sense of what is possible/allowed/appropriated within a practice and what is not. In other words, practices are socially sustained by aesthetic, ethical and affective judgements. Practising may be conceived as a process of knowing that, in doing, invents the way of doing. It is then formativeness that is the concept that expresses both how practices are changed and how they persist.
