Praxis is the process by which a theory, lesson, or skill is enacted, embodied, or realised. Praxis, for Heidegger, is implicated in the body of everyday activity which is essentially ‘enframed’ by the technologies that surround it. Martin Heidegger refers to it as a 'bringing-forth', using this term in its widest sense.

Heidegger takes from Dilthey the historical dimension of life, from Nietzsche, criticism of tradition and the necessity of decisive change, and from Pascal and Kierkegaard, the search for new possibilities beyond the established limits. Drawing on Heidegger's reading of Metaphysics Θ, I argue that he sought to secure an ontological interpretation of χίνησις, δύναμις and ένέργεια from which the influence of production had been displaced. Although through poiesis we create as a techne, we must resist to confuse it with praxis. As such, it constitutes a repetition of the essence of δύναμις and of the transcendence of Dasein insofar as it is understood to be constituted by δύναμις. When one assumes this attitude, beings present themselves to us in that modality of being which Heidegger calls Zuhandenheit.

Our goal is tied to our name: Poiesis. Heidegger's appropriation of the figure of the end-in-itself must therefore be accompanied by an attempt to wrest it from the dominant conceptual structures of production.Second, insofar as the terms in which Heidegger couches theontological determination of Dasein are taken from the language of practical philosophy, there arises a formal parallel between the transcendence of Dasein and possible structures of activity.
