The word praxis appears neither in Benson, nor in Wells, nor in Vikivortaro, nor in ReVo. (I tried prakso in the online PIV, but got no hit.) So, how would you render praxis in Esperanto?

Seems this one is correct

Praxis = Praxis is the process by which a theory, lesson, or skill is enacted, embodied, or realized. "Praxis" may also refer to the act of engaging, applying, exercising, realizing, or practising ideas. - https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Praxis_(process)

He acted on the theory = Li efektivigis la teorion.
