On the Great Transformation of the Dialectic Theory:From the Transcendence of the Practical Mode of Thinking Over the Speculative Mode of Thinking



The significance of the philosophical methodology consists in providing the mode of thinking for people to understand, grasp, and evaluate the relevant knowledge. The transformation of the dialectic theory commonly known is the transformation of the philosophical mode of thinking. One of the main reasons why people emphasizes that Marxist philosophy is a great achievement and contribution with the regular development of western philosophy is that the practical mode of thinking of Marxist philosophy is reform and innovation of the mode of thinking in the traditional western philosophy, especially the idealistic mode of thinking of Hegelian philosophy. In this paper I intend to analyze the advantages and disadvantages of the speculative mode of thinking and the criticism and reconstruction of the practical mode of thinking on the speculative mode of thinking. This contributes to show the superiority of the practical mode of thinking and its normativity for Marxist philosophy.
