Summary/Abstract: The article aims to achieve a summarized representation of the problem of subjectness as a problem of returning the functions of subjectness in history (if there is a possibility to talk about it in singular) above all in the case of abductive inference as one of the pre-deductive forms of inference in the endogenous practical logics of the dialectical.Since the latter can hardly be thought effectively in the theories of structures of self-mediation without the modality of the exogenous non-classical logic of the dialectical, the text will proceed from the more general problem of the conditions for the possibility ofits introduction, the main among which is the successful content formalization of Marx’s syllogistics. That is why the first paragraphs of the article are based on a critical examinationof the productivity of two of the formalizations of Marx’s syllogistic, which followhis Capital – David Harvey’s, on one hand, and Deyan Deyanov’s, on the other. This will give a chance, in the next paragraphs of the paper, to show clearly the reasons why the second content formalization is essential in the nonclassical logic of the dialectical.This logic’s main characteristics will be presented in the third and fourth paragraphs as a necessary condition for understanding the problem of subjectness in abductive inference as a practical logic not only in the narrower sense for the cases of scientific discoveries,but also in a wider sense, as a logic in cases of technological inventions and economic innovations (or generally in innovative labor). Precisely with this background in mind and in contrast to the critical consideration of other analysis of subjectness, such as Georg Lucacs’s and Louis Altusser’s, inspired by the Marx’s revolutionary form of science, the final part of the article outlines some important specifics about the specifics of the theoretical approach to the problem of subjectness (in abductive reasoning in particular) in the theories of structures of self-mediation.
