Abstract

Text of a talk given by Althusser at the Catalan College of Building Engineers and Technical Architects, 6 July 1976. Translated by David Broder. I feel very honoured and moved to be able to speak before you all today, thanks to the kind invitation of the Catalan College of Building Engineers and Technical Architects. This is the third time that I have spoken in Spain. The first time was in Granada, during Easter 1976. I gave a talk on whether or not we can speak of the existence of a Marxist philosophy.

They asked me questions on the French and Spanish political situation and the abandonment of the dictatorship of the proletariat by the Twenty-Second Congress of the French Communist Party ( pcf ).
