THE CONCEPT OF REVOLUTION IN THE POLITICAL THOUGHT OF ROSA LUXEMBURG
Studia Politica Slovaca, 2020, vol. 13, no. 2, p. 33-45
The paper focuses on the interpretations of the concept of revolution in work of Rosa Luxemburg. It follows the basis of Luxemburg’s reflection on the revolution, their specific historical context and impli- cations. The article outlines the controversy with revisionism, which, particularly in Luxemburg’s works, represents the first source of a theoretical grasp of the (socialist) revolution as a way of social change. Her conclusions and the methodological elaboration of the problem has been reflected in the evaluation of specific historical events (the Russian Revolution of 1905, the Great October Socialist Revolution of 1917 and the revolutionary events of November 1918 in Germany).
