Stalin as a Marxist Philosopher

Studies in East European Thought 52 (4):259 - 308 (2000)
This article treats Stalin's contributions to dialectical and historical materialism. It argues that the latter found his theses of the 'enormous' role of ideas, and of the existence of social phenomena that do not belong either to the basis or to the superstructure, in Georgij Plekhanov's 'monism'. Nevertheless, Stalin did add some new points of his own. Furthermore, his adopting Plekhanov's monism also helps us understand the apparent contradiction between Stalin's emphasis on non-economic and non-class factors in human history and his rejection of 'idealist' rudiments in dialectics.
