ABSTRACT
The article puts forward the analysis of Marxism and other closely related political and economic doctrines right from Revisionist controversy of the 1890s. The article presents the clarification that there are in the world today three main kinds of Marxist theory and practice. There is the Social Democratic variant, upheld by a number of Marxist parties, chiefly in Western Europe. The adherents of this school cling to a general framework of Marxist terminology and doctrine, and continue to teach Marxist economics, including the theory of surplus value, the assertion of the class struggle as the main factor in historical development, and the materialist conception of history that affirms the predictability of the future.
