The Black Rhetoric of Marxism represents a study applied to the Marxist rationalism and materialism. Essentially, the study points to a breach within this monolithic block, the involuntary, and yet different manner, in which Marx was exceeded by his poetical temper, and the way in which, in this case, predominated his scientific programme. The use of the dark metaphors, of a certain Jewish and Christian tradition, shows how, for supporting the scientific programme, it is required the presence of elements that are external to it.
