In this chapter each of the following five questions are addressed: (1) What is the nature of praxis? (2) In what ways can a deeper understanding of praxis inform and guide the actions of educators? (3) To what extent do the conditions of educational practice today, especially in institutionalised settings, enable, constrain or disable praxis? (4) How best can praxis be developed in initial and continuing education? (5) To what extent can praxis be safeguarded and preserved? The conclusion reached is that what safeguards education is doing education rather than schooling and what safeguards praxis is living 'a good life' both as an individual and as a member of a collective.
