The Czechoslovak working class is well-known for its revolutionary consciousness. It was manifested by its class organization as early as by the end of the 19th century in the Austrian-Hungarian monarchy, but also by its transition to the positions of the 3rd International immediately after the year 1918. The rise of the ČSSR after the World War II is thus also a lawful phenomenon. But there is the more problematic fact that this objective, lawful social process is not always to be observed adequately in the ideological social reflectioni As far as the teaching of Marxism-Leninisms is concerned, there we can come across too frequent oscillations either to the right or to the left. The present contribution is to find out some of the causes of this phenomenon. The author wants to help elucidate the question of the position of neopositivism and of its specific form — structuralism in our process of thinking and namely then in social practice.
