Abstract

It should be interesting to study here the moment when Louis Althusser, just before the “sixty-eight” period, poses the doctrinal return to Lenin as a precondition towards “theoretical anti-humanism”. This concept opens the way to ideas such as the “death of Man”, the ideological underpinning of trans-humanism, borderless, and transgender movements. It is necessary, therefore, to draw the theoretical path of this return, as happened to the detriment of this other model of theoretical explanation of history’s grammar, such as “social interaction” (which thinks the morphology of complex societies as a dynamic movement dialectically generated by the permanence of the so-called “social conflict”), and that it is possible institutional resolution, at least in a democratic regime.
