Philosophy does not have the task of transforming a world that is transformed all by itself.
But of judging that transformed world.

Escolios a un Texto Implícito: Selección, p. 232


  1. The original Spanish is:

    La filosofía no tiene la función de transformar un mundo que se transforma solo.
    Sino la de juzgar ese mundo transformado.

  2. This aphorism alludes to Marx's statement (in Theses on Feuerbach) that "the philosophers have only interpreted the world; the point is to change it."
