This is a historical event.
An ideology of reification that sees ‘things’ everywhere in human relations confuses in this category ‘thing’ (a category more foreign to Marx cannot be imagined) every social relation, conceived according to the model of a money-thing ideology. Book chapters, papers, articles (selection), Althusser in the Marx & Engels Internet Archive, https://monoskop.org/index.php?title=Louis_Althusser&oldid=93198. The concepts whereby Marx thought reality, which real-humanism pointed out, never ever again introduce as theoretical concepts the concepts of man or humanism; but other, quite new concepts, the concepts of mode of production, forces of production, relations of production, superstructure, ideology, etc. This reason, which has ‘always existed though not always in a rational form’ (e.g. Ebooks library. "On the Twenty-Second Congress of the French Communist Party", trans. 145, June 1969. The ‘subjects’ of history are given human societies. For, once again, the themes of Marxist humanism are not, first of all, themes for the use of others.
Here also the essence of man is the basis for history and politics. Part of Z-Library project. It is customary to suggest that ideology belongs to the region of ‘consciousness’.
But the conception of money as a thing (that is, the confusion of value with use-value in money) does not correspond to the reality of this ‘thing’: it is not the brutality of a simple ‘thing’ that man is faced with when he is in direct relation with money; it is a power (or a lack of it) over things and men. The ‘Essence of Man’ (whether freedom, reason or community) was the basis both for a rigorous theory of history and for a consistent political practice. In fact Marx established a new problematic, a new systematic way of asking questions of the world, new principles and a new method. He drove the philosophical categories of the subject, of empiricism, of the ideal essence, etc., from all the domains in which they had been supreme. This confluence of Feuerbach and the theoretical crisis in which history had thrown the young German radicals explains their enthusiasm for the author of the Provisional Theses, of the Essence of Christianity and of the Principles of the Philosophy of the Future. He was born in Algeria and studied at the École Normale Supérieure in Paris, where he eventually became Professor of Philosophy. When Marx confronted it, it implied the two complementary postulates he defined in the Sixth Thesis on Feuerbach: (1) that there is a universal essence of man; (2) that this essence is the attribute of ‘each single individual’ who is its real subject.

I am far from thinking that this might be the meeting of a cynicism and a naïvété. 2.
Now it is obvious that these conditions too, bear the characteristic mark of the U.S.S.R.’s past and of its difficulties – not only the mark of the difficulties due to the period of the ‘cult of personality’, but also the mark of the more distant difficulties characteristic of the ‘construction of socialism in one country’, and in addition in a country economically and culturally ‘backward’ to start with.
Socialist humanism, in its internal use, deals with the historical reality of the supersession of the dictatorship of the proletariat and of the ‘abusive’ forms it took in the U.S.S.R. This transformation in history casts light on certain transformations in the mind. "The Historic Significance of the 22nd Congress", in Étienne Balibar. "What Must Change in the Party", trans. I meant that a certain inflation of this practical, ideological concept might induce Marxist theory to fall behind its own frontiers; and what is more, might even hinder, if not bar, the way to truly posing, and hence truly solving, the problems whose existence and urgency it is intended to designate, in its own way. In the two forms of this couple inhuman/human, the bourgeoisie of the eighteenth century lived in ‘rational-liberal’ form, the German left radical intellectuals in ‘communalist’ or ‘communist’ form, the relations between them and their conditions of existence, as a rejection, a demand and a programme. ), he was, in fact, simultaneously proposing a new conception of ‘philosophy’. This luminous essence of man was the visible counterpart to a shadowy inhumanity. The adjective real is gestural; it points out that to find the content of this new humanism you must look in reality – in society, the State, etc.
In the first aspect they retain a ‘theoretical’ meaning (the meaning in their universe of reference); in the second their only meaning is as a practical signal, pointing out a direction and a destination, but without giving an adequate concept of it.
It deals with a ‘dual’ reality: not only a reality superseded by the rational necessity of the development of the forces of production of socialist relations of production (the dictatorship of the proletariat) – but also a reality which ought not to have had to be superseded, that new form of ‘non-rational existence of reason’, that part of historical ‘unreason’ and of the ‘inhuman’ that the past of the U.S.S.R. bears within it: terror, repression and dogmatism – precisely what has not yet been completely superseded, in its effects or its misdeeds. In fact, the objective of the revolutionary struggle has always been the end of exploitation and hence the liberation of man, but, as Marx foresaw, in its first historical phase, this struggle had to take the form of the struggle between classes. The word real plays a dual role. In ‘personal’ humanism, ‘class’ humanism contemplates its own future, realized.
Patrick Camiller. In a particular (ideological) mode, it designates some existents, but it does not give us their essences. Download books for free. Louis Pierre Althusser (1918–1990) was a French Marxist philosopher. Dmitriy Kolesnik and Andrey Repa, 2006, "Elements of Self-Criticism", trans. We are now in a position to return to the theme of socialist humanism and to account for the theoretical disparity we observed between a scientific term (socialism) and an ideological one (humanism). Letter to Ruge, September 1843 – an admirable formulation, the key to Marx’s early philosophy. But it is then that the shocking paradox appears: once this displacement has really been put into effect, once the scientific analysis of this real object has been undertaken, we discover that a knowledge of concrete (real) men, that is, a knowledge of the ensemble of the social relations is only possible on condition that we do completely without the theoretical services of the concept of man (in the sense in which it existed in its theoretical claims even before the displacement). "Ideologiya i ideologicheskie apparaty gosudarstva (zametki dlya issledovaniya)" [Идеология и идеологические аппараты государства (заметки для исследования)], trans. This relation, that only appears as ‘conscious’ on condition that it is unconscious, in the same way only seems to be simple on condition that it is complex, that it is not a simple relation but a relation between relations, a second degree relation.
Marx never believed that a knowledge of the nature of money (a social relation) could destroy its appearance, its form of existence – a thing, for this appearance was its very being, as necessary as the existing mode of production. First, that ideology is distinct from other social instances, but also that men live their actions, usually referred to freedom and ‘consciousness’ by the classical tradition, in ideology, by and through ideology; in short, that the ‘lived’ relation between men and the world, including History (in political action or inaction), passes through ideology, or better, is ideology itself. So freedom has always existed, in one way or another, sometimes only as a particular privilege, sometimes as a general right.’ This distinction illuminates the whole of history: thus, feudalism is freedom, but in the ‘non-rational’ form of privilege; the modern State is freedom, but in the rational form of a universal right. The earlier idealist (‘bourgeois’) philosophy depended in all its domains and arguments (its ‘theory of knowledge’, its conception of history, its political economy, its ethics, its aesthetics, etc.) Why then all this stress so deliberately laid on man? (3) The definition of humanism as an ideology.
