El Concepto de ideología. Volumen 2. El marxismo posterior a Marx: Gramsi y Althusser

El concepto de ideología que propone Jorge Larraín en este texto, se relaciona con los angeles tradición marxista tras l. a. muerte de este filósofo, y que es trabajado, principalmente, por autores como Lenin, Lukács, Gramsci y Althusser. Larraín hace referencia en sus notas introductorias, a l. a. poca importancia que se le dio al concepto de ideología tras los angeles muerte de Marx, pues como él señala, entre 1930 y 1964, las posibilidades de generar una revolución socialista eran muy pocas y, por tanto, el número y calidad de autores y obras marxistas es mínimo, con lo cual el concepto de ideología permanece en el olvido hasta los años 1965-1990

Fragmentary formulations suggest an internally conflicted orientation towards writing, criticism and the world, and suggest also that only in fragments can truth, necessarily dialectical, be expressed. 'The whole is the false': the phrase from Minima Moralia (MM: 50) implies that claims to tell the whole truth belie themselves in the utterance. What we piece together from our encounter with Adorno is not a system, but a presence, a register, a critical attitude. We shall try to show here how this presence, even in the negative responses it may provoke, can prompt and shape our thoughts when we reflect on the uses and practice of criticism.

Accepting that his experiences of Nazi Germany and the United States were very different from what, say, Raymond Williams knew in social-democratic Britain, one still wants to say that where Adorno is truculent, evasive or silent, Williams both takes a historical view of these questions and relates them to current, collective experience: the experience of a generation of students, and of the engaged teacher of culture. We have argued elsewhere that emphasis on education, within a broader project of democratic change, provides one credible link — the only one, perhaps — between the specialized world of academic cultural critique and the wide horizon of political change which left-wing criticism, including Adorno's, nominally addresses and invokes (Ryle and Soper 2002).
