Behind any theoretical construction, there is invariably an assumed anthropological notion. This article argues the importance of the anthropological reflection on Marx’ critical approach, and, following on Franz Hinkelammert’s tenets on the approach to fetishism and a praxis humanism, it shows new dimensions of turning Hegelian dialectics upside down, and its importance to think of and moving forward to a new civilizing project beyond modernity.

Keywords: anthropology, critical approach, community, fetishism, transmodernity
