Psycho-analysis. in the interior of a dialectical totaliza­ tion, meets, on the one hand, objective structures. material conditions, and, on the other, the action of our indepassable childhood on our adult life. It is henceforth impossible to relate Madame Bovary directly to the politico-social structure and the evolution of the petite bourgeoisie. The work must be related to a present reality lived by Flaubert throughout his child­ hood. The Marxist view that the social actions of a person are con­ ditioned by the general interests of his class is by no means incompatible with the idea of the conditioning of present action by infantile experience.

The present-day Marxist deals not with living totalities, as did Marx, but with fixed entities-with what Sartre calls general Sitlgularities. He discusses one Marxist interpretation (an anti-Soviet one) of the Hungarian insurrection : according to this construction, hesitant and uncertain Soviet politics are con­ ceptually fixed as the entity 'Soviet bureaucracy' and the reality of the Workers' Councils disappears into the abstract entity 'direct democracy'.
