Summary/Abstract: This article attempts to present some reflections about Rosa Luxemburg’s works from the first Russian revolution (1905-1906). I consider Luxemburg’s view on the historical meaning of this revolution and discuss her analyses of class struggle in 1905-1906. The description of class struggle’s forms and its dynamics is the most important and interesting excerpt of Luxemburg’s works from this time. She emphasized the meaning of a revolutionary sense of freedom and the changing workers consciousness that happens during the revolution. She presents an inspiring dialectic relation between defeated rebellion or revolution and the final victory of socialist movement. I think that Luxemburg’s perspective may be useful for research on contemporary social struggles (e.g. “Arab Spring”, “Occupy!”) and helpful in searching for new forms of organization for radical liberation movements.
