Abstract:The new wave of struggles emanating from the educational structures of Apartheid South Africa pose fundamental problems for contemporary analysis. What is the relationship between educational institutions and capitalist social functions? How does student revolt relate to class struggle as a whole? By situating a discriminatory educational system within the specificity of the South African social formation, examining the particular phenomenal forms which educational structures have assumed as a reflexion of the unifying totality of the essential capital relation of exploitation, and revealing the articulation between these forms and the concrete rhythms of historical development, this article represents a modest attempt to come to grips with some of these problems.
