MACHADO, Sérgio Bacchi. Marx and the criticism towards history as self-consciousness: a confrontation with the philosophy of subject. Cad. psicol. soc. trab. [online]. 2007, vol.10, n.2, pp. 63-79. ISSN 1516-3717.
The present article begins by the hypothesis that Marx's work was precursor of the criticism towards the philosophy of subject, that is, towards the notion of History as self-consciousness. The paper then approaches the dialectical materialist method and its analysis of the capitalist mode of production, delineating some central aspects of the Marxist conceptions regarding History and subject. Finally, it achieves the concept of praxis as a direct correlative of the understanding of man as a social being.
