PALAZON MAYORAL, María Rosa. The Philosophy of the praxis according to Adolfo Sánchez Vázquez. Andamios [online]. 2006, vol.3, n.5, pp.237-256. ISSN 1870-0063.

In Filosofía de la praxis, Adolfo Sánchez Vázquez interprets praxis (an obverse whose reverse is theory) as the main category of Marxism; he applies his abstractions to concrete history and he proposes along with Feuerbach that philosophy must not only interpret, but transform the world; he compares revolutionary and creative praxes with habitual practical activity; he finds its roots in work, and defines praxis as a teleological and utopian activity, that is to say, an ethical activity: based on the wish of wellbeing with and for others within fair institutions.

Keywords : Praxis; theory; historical particularization; teleology; ethical evolution.
