In political theory and particularly Marxism , class consciousness is the set of beliefs that a person holds regarding their social class or economic rank in society, the structure of their class, and their class interests. While German theorist Karl Marx rarely used the term "class consciousness", he did make the distinction between "class in itself", which is defined as a category of people having a common relation to the means of production ; and a "class for itself", which is defined as a stratum organized in active pursuit of its own interests.

Although overlooked by critics, the literary-theoretical specificity of HCC is hiding in plain sight. For the present essay, recognition is to be understood as dramatic or narrative anagnorisis , not as intersubjectivity or Neo-Hegelian acknowledgment. Anagnorisis occurs when Oedipus discovers his true breeding and finds his past to be steeped in incest and parricide. This retrospective self-knowledge is not to be confused with the subsequent scene where Oedipus, having gouged out his eyes and re-emerged a transformed figure, foists on the Chorus a demand for acknowledgment of his outrageous sufferings. Another familiar shorthand for recognition, the master-slave dialectic in Hegel, also will not do here. In the Poetics , Aristotle defines anagnorisis as the discovery of identity, arising from ignorance, immanent in events themselves, and coincident with a reversal of the situation. These four features will also hold for the consciousness of the proletariat.
