This chapter begins with an outline of the Marxian image of socialism, and of the three socialist‐system prototypes: the revolutionary‐transitional system (the transition from capitalism to socialism), the classical system (or classical socialism), and the reform system (or reform socialism). This is followed by short analyses of the system before the socialist revolution, and of the revolutionary transition towards the classical system.
