Spontaneity, Organization, Philosophy: Rosa Luxemburg and Karl Marx

Rosa Luxemburg speaks to our time, having raised vital questions about organization, including its relationship to spontaneity and consciousness, and the nature of socialist democracy after the revolutionary conquest of power. These questions, brought to the forefront again with Arab Spring, became altogether new when Dunayevskaya took them up in relationship to how they had been approached by post-World War II movements, and in the context of the discovery of the new moments of Marx’s last decade. Luxemburg’s concept of organization is measured against Marx’s, as integral to his philosophy of revolution, and against the dilemmas faced by revolutions today.
