Anarchism1 as action seems destined to be a blurred historical memory; anarchism (communist anarchism in particular) as a resource for thought and for theory, however, has historical significance and value not limited to a particular age. In this review of anarchist thought and practice, it is shown that certain ideas of anarchism, such as mutual aid, critique of capitalism, advocacy of social revolution, offer meaningful and realistic guidance for us. What is puzzling is that anarchism as thought and discourse has disappeared from China’s intellectual and academic circles, serving neither as an intellectual resource nor as a target of criticism. Nevertheless practice always precedes theory, and anarchism, though ignored by intellectual circles, has been rediscovered in and applied to rural reconstruction of the new era. This suggests that anarchism withered away only on the surface; it is still viable in the soil of reality.This article is in Chinese.无政府主义2 作为整体行动,似乎已注定只作为一种历史记忆,而且是一种被尘封的记忆而留存;但是无政府主义(此处尤指共产无政府主义)作为一种思想与理论资源,其历史意义与价值却远非局限在某一时代。在对无政府主义思想与实践的回顾中,发现无政府主义的许多思想(互助论的阐发、对资本的批判、社会革命的主张),有极重大的现实指导意义。然而,令人疑惑的是无政府主义作为一种思想、 一种话语却消失在中国思想界与学术界,它既不是可咨借鉴的思想、亦不再成为批判的对象。可实践总是先行于理论,被理论界所忽视的无政府主义,却在新时期的乡村建设之中被重新认识和运用。这表明无政府主义的隐退只是表象,实质上它在现实的土壤中依然有生命力。
