Starting from the manuscript notebooks stored in the philosopher’s personal archive, the article aims to show how the theme of the transcendentalism of praxis (t.d.p.), developed by Dal Pra particularly during the 1950s, remained an important point of reference for him at least until the mid-­1970s. Taking the original and public formulation of the t.d.p. as his starting-­point, the Author follows the recurring and constant return of the philosopher’s unpublished notes to some conceptual focal points, for which the t.d.p.’s contribution was still relevant: the relationships between philosophy and history of philosophy, theory and praxis, and general “orientation” and sectoral concepts. A different and more complex picture emerges compared to the common historiographical thesis, in a certain sense supported by Dal Pra himself, of an interest in the t.d.p. arising and developed within a limited and closed time frame.

Keywords: Dal Pra, transcendentalism of praxis, history of philosophy, theory and praxis relationship, Preti, Marxism.
