about this item

Gogol considers his present book on organization and philosophy as volume II for his books The Concept of Other in Latin American Liberation (2002) and Toward a Dialectic of Philosophy and Organization (2012). He argues for the development of a philosophy of revolution in permanence in the spirit of Marx, and looks at the organization of thought of the Zapatistas as he seeks the creation of philosophic action groups--organizations of thinker-activists steeped in dialectics who could assist the masses to realize their own powers, creativity and ability to work out a vision of a new human society. Fourteen chapters are divided into four parts: philosophic foundations; the state and social movements in Latin America; revolutionary processes in Latin America: voices from below; battle of ideas and practices; conclusions. Chapters are: the meaning of utopia in Latin America; dialectical thought—from Hegel to Marx, from Lenin to Dunayevskaya; are there emancipatory threads between utopia and the dialectic in Latin America?; Haiti, 1986-1993; the revolutionary process in Venezuela; Mexico’s revolutionary forms of organization; Bolivia; social movements in Argentina; indigenous struggles for territory, autonomy and natural resources; women as force and reason of social transformations; youth, popular education, teachers; horizontal-ism, state-ism, Marxism and the indigenous dimension; the Zapatistas and the dialectic; Marx, Hegel and Dunayevskaya.
