Chapter Summary

The author conceives this book as an aspect of a larger project. There were two subsequent moves. One would continue the history of the group through its dissolution. It was to begin with the group's responses to de-Stalinisation, Poland and Hungary. The second project would explore the notion of the Marxist Imaginary and the long-term processes whereby it imploded. The project also seemed a way to situate the Marxist Imaginary in the past. The idea to shift the relations to the Marxian framework to something on the order of closure, a process of sounding out categories with the idea of moving beyond them. The crisis of the Marxist Imaginary was driven by the collective withdrawal of affective investments in the significations that comprised it. Mothé's texts capture something of this in the breakdown of workers' capacity to reappropriate Marxian discourse.

Keywords: de-Stalinisation; Hungary; Marxist Imaginary; Mothé; Poland
