'Bad news: materialism. Notes for a praxeological reformulation of the materialist programme' by César Rendueles
Before becoming fossilised as the official philosophy of the Soviet bloc, historical materialism emerged in a very specific intellectual context: the polemics of Marx and Engels with the Hegelian left of the mid-nineteenth century. Is it possible to
reformulate the terms of this foundational debate, freed from spurious adhesions, in the light of contemporary social sciences and cultural critique? The materialist proposal seems particularly useful and urgent in a moment of strong neo-idealist reflux in which the centres of hegemonic creation have as their privileged objective the production of sensible policies that increase the unquestioned acceptance of present factuality.

César Rendueles is PhD in Philosophy and Professor of Sociology at the Universidad Complutense, Madrid.
