Revisiting Lukacs’ theory ´of realism

Thesis Eleven. 2020. Vol. 159. No. 1. P. 57-63.

This paper focuses on Georg Lukacs, for it is in his work, and the attendant debates and ´ disagreements, that an entire constellation of questions around Realism is first compellingly formulated. The purpose of the paper is to revisit Lukacs’ theory of realism as ´ a response to a host of mainstream currents shaping the landscape of Continental philosophy in the first three decades of the 20th century. Particular attention is paid to the problem of form and truth at the core of Lukacs’ theory of realism.
