Short description: According to this study’s main argument, acknowledging a qualitative leap in the transition of ensembles of configured practices legitimizes the search for a theoretical autonomy in conceptualizing social practices. The forms of social life become social institutions thanks to ensembles of practices. Those who are active participants in these institutions are involved in varying configurations of practices, in which diverse kinds of rules are operating. The difference between any one social practice and properly arranged interrelated practices is by no means only a grammatical one. It is rather a difference that provides a rationale for ascribing a dual status to any one practice integrated with configured practices.
