Aristotle held that there were three basic
activities of man: theoria, to which the end goal
was truth, poiesis to which the end goal was
production and praxis, to which the end goal was
action. He also distinguished between eupraxia
(good praxis) and dyspraxia (bad praxis,
A method is a means or manner of procedure,
especially a regular and systematic way of
accomplishing something: e.g. a simple method
for making a pie crust
A tool is a device that can be used to produce or
achieve something, but that is not consumed
in the process.
The word "perfection" derives from the Latin
"perfectio", and "perfect" — from "perfectus."
These expressions in turn come from "perficio“
"to finish", "to bring to an end."
"Perfectio(n)" thus literally means "a finishing",
and "perfect(us)" — "finished", much as in
grammatical parlance ("perfect").
