This chapter discusses the political commentaries of Georg Lukács on the subject of socialist renewal. Lukács argued for the establishment of a humanist-socialist society within the existing communist system in Eastern Europe and the Soviet Union. His work, Toward the Ontology of Social Being (1971–73) marks his revisionist philosophical attempt to return to the classical roots of Marxism.

Keywords:   political commentaries, Georg Lukáacs, socialist renewal, humanist-socialist society, communist system, Soviety Union, Marxism
