This double intervention shakes up C Level Contact List and turns on its head many ideas that were taken for granted during the half century in which figures such as Michel Foucault, Gilles Deleuze, Félix Guattari, Jean-François Lyotard, Slavoj Žižek, Judith Butler and others became the background landscape. of contemporary thought. We can locate C Level Contact List Chukhrov in a trajectory of Russian philosophy after the collapse of the Soviet Union that connects with heterodox figures of the Soviet period, such as Lev Vygotsky, Valentin Volóshinov, C Level Contact List Alexander Luria and, above all, Évald Iliénkov and Mijaíl Lifshitz. In other words, Chukhrov belongs to the current of post-Soviet Marxism that gives continuity to these thinkers. In the first two decades of this C Level Contact List century, voices like those of Alain Badiou, Slavoj Žižek, Bruno Bosteels, Gianni Vattimo and Jodi Dean led the current wave of rethinking a communist horizon for our time, but Chukhrov undertakes a C Level Contact List philosophical reexamination of historical communism as it was experienced in the ussrand it does so from premises very different from those of the aforementioned Western theorists. She C Level Contact List does not dispute that communism can be a current horizon, but rather she is interested in confirming that a communist experience already exists from which to reflect on present and future projects of anti-capitalist emancipation. The reassessment of Soviet C Level Contact List communism gained importance with a book as laconic as it was provocative by Boris Groys entitled Communist Postscript (2006)two, whose virtuoso handling of the paradox reminds us of Guy Debord's famous treatise The Society of the Spectacle (1967)3. Groys argues that, without needing to ignore the C Level Contact List extremely deleterious despotism of Iósif Stalin, in any consideration of communism in the 20th century , one must start from the fact that private property was effectively abolished in the C Level Contact List USSR and the first modern society was established in which language (ideology, philosophy) was imposed on the economy, that is, on the capitalist law of value.
