In 1923, in "History and Class Consciousness", Georg Lukacs asks himself: "What is Orthodox Marxism?". The context of this question is curious. A powerful heterodoxy, the Leninist interpretation, had broken through by force of will and courage in the complicated eddies resulting from the First World War, the decline of a huge empire and, as Lenin would say, of the existence of a "weakest link" in the capitalist chain. Lukacs would then be expected to defended a "heterodox Marxism". His gesture, however, is clear: Leninism is the "true" "orthodoxy".
