Philosophically engaging, and practically oriented, this book asks whether philosophic clarity can account for effective revolutionary organizational practice.

This work takes as its starting point the question “What Philosophic-Organizational Vantage Point is Needed for Revolutionary Transformation Today?” Gogol offers an answer by exploring organizational practices in the Paris Commune, the 2nd International, the Russian Revolutions, and several other epochal struggles, as well as the theoretical-organizational concepts of such thinkers as Lenin, Trotsky, and Luxemburg.
What People Are Saying
"Toward a Dialectic ought to be taken as an important contribution to an on-going project to reveal the logic of the development of emancipatory organizations … for Marxists, the detailed tracing of the forms of working class organization from its inception up to today is a precondition for solving the deep conundrums facing emancipatory projects today. And for bringing this to our attention and making a first attempt, Gogol deserves considerable praise." —Andy Blunden, Marx and Philosophy Review of Books
