Description Everyday social practices and mechanisms of power hidden in them are involved in the process of construction of social reality. Through their effect, social practices can influence the behavior of people who construct a social reality by their actions. Social practices are tied to the knowledge that is collectively shared in a society and time and that isinvolved in the construction of people sharing ideas about the world and social reality. These people's beliefs about the world then influence their thinking and behavior. Therefore, the aim to understand social practices goes hand in hand with an effort to understand the phenomenon of knowledge. The sociology of knowledge offers a suitable way to consider the social practices. It deals with the phenomenon of people’s knowing and thinking in their everyday life, in which the social world is not only constructed, but also confirmed and maintained. The aim of the study is to create a clear and comprehensive explanation of social practice and to link this issue with the optics of sociology of knowledge.
