The paper shows how Marxist dialectics is disparaged, deformed and depreciated (as a typical example the work of an anti-Marxist philosopher, W. Becker: Idealist and Materialist Dialectics, is quoted here). The author explains the determination by materialist dialectics of various empirical-logical methods and in the end he sums up his thoughts: Dialectics in its “rational abstraction“ (which has its own material background) leads us from facte to the whole, from aggregates to systemis, from the concrete to the abstract and the reverse, i. e. to a higher stage of knowledge of objective reality. In the social and cultural sphere it is infinite dialectical process historical-logical affinity of events in material and spiritual world.
