Ilyenkov Texts

E. V. Ilyenkov and V. I. Korovikov 1954
Theses on the Question of the Interconnection of Philosophy and Knowledge of Nature and Society in the Process of their Historical Development

In April 1954, Ilyenkov and his friend Valentin Korovikov, junior lecturers at Moscow State University, wrote these “theses on philosophy.” The theses were the subject of discussion at an open meeting of their department. The subsequent furore pitched Ilyenkov and Korovikov against the Soviet philosophical establishment, controlled by philosophers who had come to prominence at the height of Stalinism. Korovikov and Ilyenkov survived only when Khrushchev’s famous speech at the 20th Congress pushed the conflict into the background. The Theses were only discovered by Ilyenkov’s daughter, Elena Illesh, in 2016.
