This year is celebrated the centenary of the birth of the theoretic and
Marxist revolutionary Raya Dunayesvskaya (1910 - 1987), it was
published recently in Spanish: Philosophy and revolution, of Hegel to
Sartre and Marx to Mao (Filosofía y revolución, de Hegel a Sartre y de
Marx a Mao, México, Siglo XXI, 2009). Ukrainian of birth, Raya settles
with its family in the United States in 1922; she arrives at Mexico in
1937 as secretary of Trotski in Russian language, breaking with him by
their political divergences with respect to the characterization of the
Soviet Union: while she thought, mainly after the non-aggression pact
Hitler-Stalin of 1939, that Russia was not more a Worker's State, the
founder of the Red Army maintained whenever it was a Worker's State,
although degenerate. In 1938 she returns to the United States, where she
carries out an intense political activity and a prolific intellectual
production, related both to the newspaper News and Letters, expression
of the current Marxist-humanist who it was founded by the fifties. She
sustains that originally Marx denominated their new theoretical
elaborations no materialism nor idealism, but humanism.
