Praxis School

   This school of thought was named after the theoretical journal to which many of its proponents contributed and also after the central concept in their writings. Based in Yugoslavia the leading figures of the Praxis School include Gajo Petrovic and Mihailo Markovic. The Praxis School emphasizes the humanist character of Marxism. The notion of praxis embodies the view that human beings create and change both the world they live in and themselves through their self-creative activity, and this distinguishes us from other animals.
