Subject: BHA: Help on structuralism

Hi all

Its clear to me that the focus of critical realism is on structures,
mechanisms, causal powers and so on.

Can anyone tell me what is the difference between this conception and
the old marxist structuralism like Althusser? Because as far as I
understand, that kind of structuralism lead to a static and rigid view
of society.
