My article is divided into four parts. In the first part I lay out briefly the historical context of the Cultural Revolution. In the second part, I examine the concept of “cultural revolution” as it appears in classical Marxism and as understood by Mao Zedong. In part three, through digging out some positive values present in the Cultural Revolution, I attempt to show that the 1960s was not merely negation. And in part four I consider some of the effects of the Cultural Revolution, which may be relevant today, not only for China but for our “depoliticized,” ecologically-threatened world.
