De Certeau cites Kant, “If theory has still little effect on practice, it is not theory’s fault; it is rather that there is not enough of the sort of theory that one should have learned from experience” (from: The Practice of Everyday Life, 1988).
*it can also be theory’s fault, in a way, for being envisaged as separate from practice. or it is not theory’s fault that it is being envisaged as such.
**the theory that comes before practice is as important as the theory that comes after it; conversely, the practice that comes after theory is as important as the practice that comes before it.
