Abstract

The following contribution focuses on the definitions and direct activities in the context of the Marxist ideological–political camp since the middle of the 1890s, when the Yugoslav Social– Democratic Party was established, and in the period of the First Yugoslavia, when the Marxists were divided between the reform and revolutionary ideas. The article looks at their envisioned socio–economic concept, based primarily on the interests of the working class, and consequently on the conception and realisation of democracy. Furthermore the article analyses the Marxist attitude and practical reactions towards the Catholic, liberal, as well as the internally diverse Marxist camp. It also clears up the interests of the nation as a whole, as well as the concepts of the cultural development in view of the other ideological–political orientations in Slovenia.
