FROM CLASS-SOCIETY TO A DEMOCRACY IN PERMANENCE. PETR UHL’S “PROGRAM OF SOCIAL SELF-MANAGEMENT”
Languages of publication
The paper deals with the normative democratic theory of the revolutionary Marxist and Trotskyite Czech dissident Petr Uhl (born in 1941). It describes the ambitions and analyses the problems of his main political work “Program of Society’s Self-Organization” written in the late 1970s. In this work Uhl attempted to describe, interpret, and criticize the existing political system in Czechoslovakia but also in the Western world and designed a normative democratic theory. The article also discusses the question of who influenced his thinking and answers two further questions: How was his “Program” perceived? and did Uhl change his political point of view in the years following the publication of his program?
