Bourdieu and Praxeology
In their book cover summary, the authors state that the term “praxeology” is taken from an article by Pierre Bourdieu and concerns three different forms for theoretical knowledge: the subjective or phenomenological, the objective and the praxeological.  The authors stress that their work highlights independent nursing science and not nursing sociology. They aim to provide training in nursing science that is grounded in the humanities and social experience science.

The book is relevant to researchers, students and interns.
