Marxism and Anarchism: Some Classical Dilemmas of the Present

In the text, we are faced with the relationship between anarchism and Marxism, a process that extends in both theoretical as well as practical traditions of these two directions from the 19th century onwards. Relying on the analysis of classical texts’ thinkers of anarchism and Marxism, we are interested more in the generality of theme and wider fields disagreements than in the actual conflicts. In doing so, we pay special attention to certain essential moments of these texts, which are again and again repeated in the afore-mentioned relationship, and which, with in-depth analysis, also allow a better understanding of the current social practices. We begin by examining the basic concepts of Marxist and anarchist theories, while touching upon particular objectives, methods and our own methodological understandings of social relations. Subsequently, we move on to different aspects of the class understanding of these differences, following a clearer definition of political issues. These include dilemmas about authority, the state and political organization. We primarily explain the role and importance that these concepts and their modes of connectivity take in different theoretical models. In the conclusion, we aim to show the total foundation of these contradictions and conflicts, which is reflected in particular in relation to a different understanding of regularity, and thus to a different understanding of management in production. In doing so, we want to show that there is a political position inherent to class struggle.
