The word praxis is a noun and it refers to the way of doing things. The word can also refer to the use of a theory or belief in a practical way as we use in everyday life. But the use of this word is not very common and you come across the word usually in Philosophy.

The word can seek its origin in the Latin language and where it is derived from a word that means 'to do'. The word has its use in the Greek Mythology also and it is used as one of the names of Aphrodite, the goddess of sexuality, lust, love and beauty. Venus is considered as the roman counterpart of Aphrodite as she is also connected with the same abstract phenomena.
