Summary/Abstract: On Genesis, written In 1966 is a short summary of Althusser’s early theory of encounter. In Althusser’s note we find description of structural causality as opposed to teleological and mechanicist notions of historical determinations. The text has documentary value allowing the reader to look at problems presented in such works as Reading Capital from the perspective proposed by Aalthusser in his texts devoted, among others, to aleatory conception of materialism and theory of history.
