Der imaginäre Bordiga
In his essay ‘The imaginary Bordiga’ the late political scientist criticises
Jacques Camatte, a former disciple of the Italian communist Amadeo
Bordiga, one of the founders of the Italian Communist Party, for his interpretation of the writings of his teacher. In his introduction to a collection of writings by Bordiga, entitled Testi sul comunismo [Texts on communism], Camatte develops an Interpretation of capitalism that sees all forms of resistance to its system devoured by capital itself, leaving no other option but a complete exit from this world. Against this interpretation Riechers holds that Bordiga presented a coherent communist world view allowing future communist party activists to reinstate the true pillars of Marxism, i. e. its invariance, to overcome capitalism and construct communism.
