The Soviet People as Builders of Communism

Russian Studies in Philosophy 16 (4):3-22 (1978)

Abstract
In the scientific study of historical processes, the Marxist position that the masses of the people are the agent of history has become a primary truth. As an initial methodological directive it stands opposed to every type of attempt to represent history as a process whose participants divide sharply into two fundamentally different groups - historical figures whose deeds shape the course and results of the historical development of society, and the rest of the people, who are the "passive matter" of history, capable only of inert resistance to the changes that are taking place
