Abstract

PERISSINOTTO, Renato Monseff. The Eighteenth Brumaire and the contemporary class analysis. Lua Nova [online]. 2007, n.71, pp. 81-121. ISSN 0102-6445.  http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0102-64452007000200004.

This article considers The Eighteenth Brumaire of Louis Napoleon a kind of summary which condenses all the inherent difficulties to the class analysis of Politics. The article is divided in four parts. In the first part, it analyses some passages of The Eighteenth Brumaire that enunciate some fundamental propositions on class analysis of Politics; secondly, it asserts that contemporary Marxist literature on class has not solved the problems here pointed out; in the third and forth parts it discusses some class and non-class perspectives alternative to Marxism; at last, it essays some reflections on possible ways of elaborating with the class analysis of Politics and the problems to be overcome in those cases.

Keywords : The Eighteenth Brumaire of Louis Napoleon; Contemporary class analysis; Marxism.
