Studies in Dialectical Materialism. It could certainly be said that this misunderstanding of Marxism from the side of bourgeois professors is a product of their class interests, but the author imagines such an interpretation to be slightly simplified; he tries to find another way, by revealing the underlying socio-historical condition that forced the representative bourgeois philosophy to reject the dialectical method.
From this it follows that the abstract route, the route of pure scientific critique outside revolutionary struggle for this abolition, does not and cannot exist: The question about the possibility of a special science is best solved in its procedure of studying a specific object, in its subject.
The opposite could not be, he concludes, because in the opposite case it would turn out that theory breaks from its own basis and hangs in the air. Finally, the third part of the history of Marxism begins in the 20th century, our day. The reason for it is the idiosyncratic conception of philosophy in passing we remark, additionally, that here the conception of dialectics cannot be without fault: True, comrade Korsch allows one to understand what he has in mind by philosophy, as the expression of the revolutionary movement or as the comprehensive theory of social revolution.

Comrade Korsch asserts that the classical philosophy of German idealism from Kant to Hegel is an expression of the pyilosophie revolutionary movement. And finally, the third limit ascribed philoxophie the same author to bourgeois-philosophy is class shortsightedness, hindering bourgeois science to correctly evaluate its hostility to society and the ability to correctly determine its reflection in theory.
As it cannot realize the practical-revolutionary value of the class movement of the proletariat inside bourgeois society, so it also cannot grasp in the thought of this society the essence of the positions in which this movement finds its theoretical expression.
It only thoroughly and exactly notes the direction of development of this reality, reflects reality in conception, and so itself insures everyone, by seriously grasping it, against the possibility of remaining fools because of ignorance, existing amidst the development of the same reality.
