Discussion on Separation and Unity of Labor and Practice

Jiying HOU


Aristotle is the originator of traditional practical philosophy, while Marx is the founder of contemporary practical philosophy. They present the relationship of criticism and inheritance each other, but their class stands are opposite. Aristotle keeps to the standpoint of exploiting class, and strictly separates “practice” and “labor”. Labor is kept in the status of being criticized and demoted. However, Marx keeps to the standpoint of laboring people, and can see the internal connection between labor and practice. The research on practice from the perspective of labor helps to achieve the “labor into practice” and internal unity of labor and practice.
