An evaluation of the concept of praxis in the philosophies of Karl Marx and John Dewey is representative of the conflict between two modes of praxis today. What is often overlooked is that these two men hold many positions in common. Both men abhored metaphysical speculation. The real problems of men need intelligent action for their solution that philosophy as an ivory tower pursuit can never provide. A consideration of praxis in the writings of Karl Marx and John Dewey will reaffirm the demands men have made on philosophy and in two very different ways illustrate how philosophy can respond to the human condition.
