Under the Spell of the Linguistic Idiom
On Yugoslav Philosophy of Practice

Jurij Murašov

Deutsche Fassung


The philosophy of practice, which came into being in the 1960s, first worked mainly on a philosophical-historic basis. Unlike official Yugoslav philosophy, it gave a privileged place to Marx’s early work, that is to say, a less analytical, more rhetorical, performative type of theory. With that, it corresponded to an international theory that was enjoying particular popularity. Specific South Slavic conditions led to the creation of nationalist tendencies within this milieu of a dissident philosophy.
