مقتطفات :
"على العكس من الميتافيزيقية تعتبر الديالكتيكية ان التناقضات الداخلية ملازمة في جميع الاشياء والظواهر في الطبيعة، لانها جميعا تحتوي على جانبيها السلبي والايجابي، جانبيها الماضي والمستقبل، شيء زائل وشيء متطور، وان الصراع بين هذين النقيضين، الصراع بين القديم والجديد، بين ما هو زائل وما هو مولود، بين ما يجري اختفاؤه وما يجري تطوره، يشكل المحتوى الداخلي لعملية التطور، المحتوى الداخلي لتحول التغيرات الكمية إلى تغيرات كيفية"

مع التجريد من المعني السياسي ثم نحكم..
برأيي يجب ان يستبعد الجدل عن حلقة الفلاسفة ليتجه نحو اوسع الجماهير الشعبية..

بالنسبة للماركسيين اللينينيين الماويين " لا توجد وحدة بدون صراع ".

بالرجوع ألي ماركس "تصبح النظرية قوة مادية حالما تستحوذ على الجماهير".

تحويل المراحل الأولي للحياة الي نظرية سياسية تشمل جميع مناحي الحياة.

إيمان الحزب الشيوعي بالتطور كتابةً فقط لكن ليس عملياً.

مقتطف عن طبيعة الناس "بما ان الناس، حين يحسنون اداة انتاج واحدة أو اخرى، أو عنصرا من عناصر قوى الانتاج أو اخر، لا يدركون ولا يفه

Es un libro muy claro donde explica lo que es el Materialismo Histórico y Dialéctico citando a Marx, Engels y Lenin. Es sencillo y abre el mundo marxista para la gente que no entiende mucho. Lo recomiendo.

A regurgitation of Marx. I can't seem to find anything new in Stalin's analysis. Not necessarily a *bad* book, just not incredibly interesting.

a mess. reifies dialectics and makes it part of biological development (as in engels), draws out a schematic vanguardism, and a pat narrative of historical development. ideology theory, which is nuanced historically, reduced to party dogmatism. nasty business!

What comes first? Matter or spirit? Exploited vs exploiting? fight of material over ideal. few things that are striking

good explanations, a little bit off the mark for me in certain spots but overall a decent quick read.
