An Introduction to the Logic of Marxism by George Novack

By George Novack

Marxism is dialectical, Novack explains. It considers all phenomena of their improvement, of their transition from one country to a different. And it's materialist, explaining the area as subject in movement that exists ahead of and independently of human realization.

As has been indicated, various sectors of the anti-Fascist emigration—Catholic intellectuals, radical democrats, federalists and social democrats—developed a relatively differentiated conception of totalitarianism in the years following 1925. In 1947, the liberal journalist and editor of the journal Risorgimento liberale published a first Italian monograph entitled Lo stato totalitario. 73 His presentation found little reception and is now completely forgotten. After 1944, the Italian market acquired the numerous contributions from the contexts of politics, politology, economics, theology and philosophy that had arisen in the other Western languages in the preceding decades.

However clumsy the descriptions of ‘subjective’ and ‘objective’ totalitarianism may be, they nonetheless clarify the Church’s traditional understanding of the nature and goal of the state. 36 As our interim finding, we discover that the thesis posited earlier has been confirmed. In the years between 1934 and 1938, it would be difficult to find another thinker who produced an interpretation of the totalitarian phenomenon that is as comprehensive and subtle as this one. This observation will hold even more once it has been indicated that Sturzo did not overlook a further possible interpretation of the new dictatorships.
