Praxis in Philosophy

Praxis: action, doing, activity. Aristotle contrasts praxis with poiesis and theoria. For Marx and later Marxist writers, praxis is contrasted with wage labour. Praxis is free, conscious, creative human activity, which alone is capable of generating knowledge and creating change in the social order. Interesting contributions to the concept of praxis have been made by Jurgen Habermas and, particularly, Hannah Arendt. For example, see Melaney, W. D. (2006), Arendt’s Revision of Praxis: On Plurality and Narrative Experience. Analecta Husserliana, 90, pp. 465-479.
