Rudolf Stammler ; German neo-Kantian philosopher and jurist. The dispute between Marxist thinkers and academic philosophers was not over the nature of objectivity in the social and historical sciences — on this all were in agreement — but on the practical complement of these sciences, a complement which according to the orthodox Marxists was to be of a political nature, but according to the many academic thinkers, notably the neo-Kantians, of an ethical nature.

The ethical conceptions of socialism, moreover, lead to a liberal ideology which subordinates the end to the means and the group to the individual; the conceptions of socialist action as social technology, conversely, subordinate the means to the end and the individual to the collective.

It can be understood only as the obverse side of causal necessity, of which the aspect involving events belongs to theoretical study and the side involving will to immediate experience — and both of them simultaneously.

In comparison with Kautsky, he rejected any mixture of Darwinism and Marxism, preserving the purely historical and social character of die latter, while refusing, like Kautsky and Marx himself, any attempt to found socialism on ethical values, and moreover, apparently taking a more orthodox position than Kautsky, for he rejected any kind of finalism. The last named, a writer and thinker of the highest level, devoted an important part of his work to the problems of the relations between the thought of Kant and Marx, and left numerous books, which by their form as well as their content, exercised a wide influence on several generations of young socialists in Central Europe.

The knowledge of historical and social life is not science but consciousness although it must obviously strive towards the attainment of a rigour and precision comparable to those achieved in an objective fashion by the natural sciences.
