Is revolution possible in the modern world as something more important than those “theatrical” events that mass media taught us to perceive as “revolutions” in the absence of “big politics”? Today, not only right-wing but also many left-wing theorists give a negative answer to this question. This book is devoted to the analysis of the “thesis related to the death of revolution”. The criticism of this thesis and its justifying arguments do not aim to prove the opposite, namely, the possibility, let alone the need for the revolution. Our goal is to open the way for the theory of revolution that frees the latter from the concept of progress and at the same time shows it as a paradigm modern phenomenon, paying tribute to the contingent, eventful and liberating nature of the revolution.
