Historicity of-a da Philosophy of-a Praxis Dat-a da philosophy of-a praxis thinks of-a itself in a historicist manner, dat is, as da transitory phase of-a philosophical thought, no is only implicit in its-a entire system, but is made quite explicit in-a da well-known thesis…

In-a da phase of-a struggle for hegemony it is da science of-a politics which is developed; in-a da State phase all-a da superstructures must be developed, if one no is to risk-a da dissolution of-a da State. Che bene.

To de economico-corporate phase, to da phase of-a struggle for hegemony in civil society and to da phase of-a State power-a dere correspond specific intellectual activities which cannot be arbitrarily improvised or anticipated.

Here again-a da thought expressed by [Rosa] Luxemburg remains useful and suggestive when she writes about-a de impossibility of-a treating certain questions of-a da philosophy of-a praxis in so far as dey have not yet become actual for-a da course of-a history in general or-a…

As da scientist of-a politics on-a de other hand he feels himself free from-a dese idols of-a his age and of-a his group and treats da same conception with more immediacy and with total originality; he penetrates to its-a heart and develops it in a vital way.

A man of-a politics writes about philosophy: it could be dat his "true" philosophy should be looked for rather in his writings on politics.

It can be dat a great personality expresses da more fecund aspects of-a his thought not in-a da section which, or so it would appear from-a da point of-a view of-a external classification, ought to be da most logical, but elsewhere, in a part which apparently could be judged…
