Despite its limitations, classical Marxism remains an essential theory for the critical understanding of contemporaneity. However, some of its assumptions are unsustainable. Starting from a constructive criticism of Marxism, namely of its Eurocentered nature, this article attempts to deconstruct the notion of the proletariat as historical subject, considering it empirically unverifiable. If there are no groups destined to lead the process of socio-historical change, the real emancipation of the oppressed of the world has necessarily to articulate the struggles of the working classes with those of all the other dominated groups in the world-system
