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

By Jorge Larraín

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 l. a. 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
