This paper strived to examine and explain the evolvement of the Paris Commune as a concept from the outset to current time. This was achieved by working with written text on the subject from four select left-winged thinkers, Marx, Lenin, Bakunin and Kropotkin. Our intend to examine the evolution of the Commune concept inside the left-wing political spectrum, and how the aforementioned political thinkers, might have influenced the understanding of the concept. We sought to examine this by using Erslev’s historiographic method and the historian Reinhart Koselleck’s theory of Experience as Horizon, as an influence on the understanding and evolution of historical time. The Commune has functioned as an undefined republican revolution, which allowed later interpreters to shape the understanding of the Commune accordingly to their own agenda. The space of historic experiences derived from the Commune by left-wing philosophers and ideologies, such as Marx, has without a doubt had influences on how later works approached the historic event as a concept.
