On Althusser’s Marxist Dramatic Theory

Haixia LI, Juwen FU


The founder of “structural Marxism” Louis Althusser through the law of unity of opposites in materialist dialectics reveals the profound meaning of “Materialism Theater”, eliminates accusation of “the materialist theater”, reveals its true and false consciousness. He uses centrifugal structure to analyze materialist theater analysis ideology to demonstrate the essential difference between materialist theater and traditional theater and thus reveal the substantive difference between false ideology and true ideology and reveals the conflict between traditional ideology and the social reality. Althusser wants to abandon the false dialectics in the conscious world to show the real state of the real world. This idea is identical with Marx’s idea of revealing the false consciousness of the real world to show the true consciousness.
