    Despite its remarkable pretensions of scientific nature, Marxism is not a scientific theory, as far as it is epistemologically built upon Hegel dialectical metaphysics idealist model. The three great epistemological mistakes evolving Marx's thought --Theologizing, economic determinism and radical holism-- all of them derive from object immanency, featuring Hegel's dialectics. Those three problems have heavy political consequences, which appear both inside the famous discussion on revisionism within German social-democracy in the beginning of the XXth century, and inside political de-naturalisation of 1917 soviet revolution. For the second item, pointed the blame toward Lenin and, above all, Stalin, a certain "omission negligence" can be attributed to Marx, as a result of his theo-retical misevaluation of the revolutionary being. Notwithstanding, Marx is and has been one of the most important thinkers all along the history, while, Marxism, as a weltanschauung (world view) and a political ideology, remains most needed than ever, as one of the main approaches of social thought.
