Abstract:
"But history is neither watchmaking nor cabinet construction. It is an endeavour toward better understanding and, consequently, a thing in movement. To limit oneself to describing a science just as it is will always be to betray it a little. It is still more important to tell how it expects to improve itself in the course of time. " (M. Bloch) The purpose of a motto is to indicate the spirit in which a work is conceived; to reveal a little of oneself in the hope that the reader will be indulgent. If the above is to serve this purpose, a further dimension must be added to it - for it is more important to participate in the improvement of a science than merely to tell how it expects to improve itself. In this respect, this study aims not merely to elucidate and criticize Lukäcs' central analytical concepts, but also to extend and apply them creatively to Lukäcs' work itself. It is thus simultaneously a study of Lukacs and a study from Lukäcs.
