Capitalism and Class Consciousness: the ideas of Georg Lukacs by Chris Nineham

Capitalism and Class Consciousness: the ideas of Georg Lukacs by Chris Nineham

Published by counterfire
Georg Lukács was the great theorist of revolution in the 20th century. In the process of explaining the principles of the Russian revolution he provided answers to some vital questions: How do capitalist ideas maintain a hold on our consciousness? In what circumstances do people become radicalised? And how can socialists build genuinely mass revolutionary movements?

Lukács’ revolutionary ideas of the 1920s were suppressed by Stalin, and have been marginalised in academia and ignored even by many on the left. They have lived an underground existence, re-emerging whenever fundamental change is being discussed. This booklet introduces his ideas and argues they are vital in our world of crisis and war.
