Summary:

The research approaches the problem of which are the guidelines of ideality that the Strategic Thought of the Revolution considers for the configuration and development of the relation between the ruler and the ruled classes, in current Cuban society.

It is a complete research that, since 2001, introduces partial results, provides answers to the problem considered and fulfills the objectives proposed of revealing the main ideas and conceptions about the relation between the ruler and the ruled classes as a key precedent in Strategic Thought of Cuban Revolution, and discovering the main theoretical premises and the guidelines of ideality and perspectives of development of this Strategic Thought.

From the socio-philosophical perspective that this subject is undertaken, there is not a systematic approach in literature, that is why the authors widely use primary sources and provide a substantial richness of reflections and elaborations with the aid of many Social Sciences, starting from an obvious dialectical-materialistic vision of society and the development of political thought.

The guidelines of ideality that direct a new kind of relation between the ruler and the ruled classes in Cuban Revolution are very useful not only to understand the peculiarity of its Strategic Thought, but also these constitute an invaluable help to a better understanding, from the perspective of social direction, of the challenges faced by the socialist construction in the present.

The result has a high rigor and brings out the technical scientific level and control of the theoretical methodological instruments on the part of the authors, which is evidenced in the critic work carried out on the bibliography consulted. It has internal coherence and integrating character, the expositive language is also coherent and accesible, making its use easier.
