ABSTRACT. A very widespread philosophical cliché is the one affirming that Karl Marx abandoned Hegelian philosophy in favor of his materialist conception of history, overturning, that way, Hegelian dialectics. Even though Marx himself stated that he was a materialist philosopher, in this essay we will try to demonstrate that Marx, despite what he wrote about his own thought, was an Idealist philosopher and the specter of Hegel (from a philosophical and scientific point of view) was always behind his reflections concerning both philosophy and science. pp. 43–63

Keywords: abstraction; dialectics; idealization; philosophy of praxis; science
