  1. Yes, of course. Although some of the propositions contained in the works of Marx and Engels were criticized, Marxism (especially when combined with Freud's ideas, i.e. Freudomarxism) turned out to be one of the most popular trends in twentieth-century philosophy.

    It is enough to name such significant and quite modern authors, who in one way or another rely on the ideas of Marxism, as Marcuse (1898-1979), Fromm (1900-1980) or Zizek (b.1949), to make sure that Marxism has not lost its relevance.

  2. Dialectics is Hegel (“The Science of Logic”). Diamat-Hegel's dialectic from a materialistic perspective. Hegel, after all, was an objective idealist. The classics of Marxism did not add anything to Hegel. On the contrary, they turned it down. And they applied Hegel's dialectic (in a materialistic version) to human society. Everything is up to date. Hegel's dialectic is the pinnacle of philosophy. And philosophy is the science of the universal laws of nature and society.

  3. For example, dialectical GAP networks are used in image processing and machine learning, which is easily verifiable, on some research gate
    That is, they are quite applicable and relevant, and applicable for their intended purpose.(as a cognitive theory).

  4. the laws of dialectics are a metaphor. There are sound arguments, a certain “teaching”, but it does not apply to the Scientific method of cognition of the world and objective laws of nature (laws of interaction of material objects).

    The concept of Materialism has nothing to do with Matter, and the term ” laws “should be used more precisely, otherwise Hitler also had” laws”, and in the slave empires there were laws.

    Well, the relevance of non-scientific research has always been greater than zero only in ancient times when there was no Scientific method of cognition. And now that Logic has separated from Philosophy, and when everyone knows and uses the concept of a Scientific experiment (a verifiable result of an experiment that does not depend on the personality of the experimenter), there is no longer any sense in the classics of Marxism, socialism and other dialectics.

  5. Marxism “in the broadest sense” is indeed an essential component of the continental philosophical tradition of the twentieth and twenty-first centuries (Lukacs, the Frankfurt school, French post-structuralism, etc.); however, everything that concerns “dialectical materialism” and “laws of dialectics” has never had significance beyond the Soviet philosophical officialdom imposed from above (and thus has not had any significance at all).
