This article will argue that there exists a fundamentally continuous tradition of Marxian stage theory from the beginning of the twentieth century until the present day. This tradition is intimately linked to turning points in the historical process of capital accumulation. These turning points mark the inauguration of a period of relatively unproblematic reproduction of capitalist social relations or, symmetrically, the beginning of a period of stagnation and crisis. Simply put, the alternating periods of growth and crisis which describe the transition from one capitalist stage to another have left a strong imprint on the history of the Marxian theory of capitalist stages.
