GEORG LUKACS HISTORY AND CLASS CONSCIOUSNESS PDF

The book consists of aseries of essays treating, among other topics, the definition of orthodox Marxism, the question oflegality and illegality, Rosa Luxemburg as a Marxist, the changing function of Historic Marxism,class consciousness, and the substantiation and consciousness of the Proletariat. It goeswithout saying that the problem was omnipresent. A few years after History and Class Consciousnesswas published, it was moved into the focus of philosophical discussion by Heidegger in his Being andTime, a place which it maintains to this day largely as a result of the position occupied by Sartreand his followers. The philologic question raised by L. Goldmann, who considered Heidegger's workpartly as a polemic reply to my admittedly unnamed work, need not be discussed here. It sufficestoday to say that the problem was in the air, particularly if we analyze its background in detail inorder to clarify its effect, the mixture of Marxist and Existentialist thought processes, whichprevailed especially in France immediately after the Second World War.

In this connection priorities, influences, and so on are not particularly significant. What is important is that the alienation of man was recognized and appreciated as the central problem of the time in which we live, by bourgeois as well as proletarian, by politically rightist and leftist thinkers.

Thus, History and Class Consciousness exerted a profound effect in the circles of the youthful intelligentsia. George Lukacs's History and Class Consciousness is a truly extraordinary work, and its English translation, after almost fifty years of neglect by English and American publishers, is a major event The full quality of Lukacs's brilliance is most powerfully manifested in this 'youthful' work done when merely 38! For all this, then, we owe homage to Georg Lukacs.
