    Background: Hungary's leading Marxist philosopher, Gyorgy Lukacs died in Budapest last week. He was 86.

    In one of the longest careers in the European Communist movement, his theories had a major impact on the mainstream of its thinking from the beginning of the century up to the 1940s.

    Although he was a leading exponent of Marxism, Lukacs rejected Stalinism and fell into disgrace in Hungary and other Communist states when he accepted the post of Education Minister in the brief government of Mr. Imre Nagy during the 1956 Hungarian uprising.

    Like ex-Premier Nagy, Lukacs took refuge in the Yugoslav Embassy in Budapest, but was later deported to Rumania. Nagy was executed but Lukacs was allowed to return home after some months in exile.
