Chapter Summary

This front matter section of the book Dialectics of the Ideal: Evald Ilyenkov and Creative Soviet Marxism contains the table of contents and the foreword. The book discusses 'creative' Soviet Marxism a body of thought that developed prior, alongside and sometimes in opposition to 'official' Soviet Marxism, the state-sanctioned doctrine of Diamat. It introduces some of the most innovative and relevant ideas from this body of thought to readers of English in the West. Evald Ilyenkov stands out as the leader of an intellectual current that sought to break with official Diamat during the Khrushchevite thaw.
