In the 50s and 60s of the twentieth century, Lucio Colletti developed a requisition against Hegel and against those elements of his philosophy that had penetrated into Marxism. The main thesis is simple and clear: the more Marxism is contaminated with Hegelism the more it loses scientific consistency. This thesis ends up investing the judgment on the work of Lenin too. The essay in question will show the opposite: the concepts that the Russian revolutionary will find in Hegel’s Logic provide him the tools usefull to avoid the ideological deviations of his time and to identify the theoretical errors committed by Trotsky and the exponents of the Second International, both prisoners of the abstract intellect and of mechanistic ways of thinking. This judgment also belonged to Gramsci, who was not by chance a reader and a profound admirer of Hegel. Both Gramsci and Lenin often accuse Trotsky and the Second Internationalists of not having been able to internalize the dialectical logic, with very serious and dangerous political repercussions.
