In a single sentence: by "genetic" philosophy (not only Marxism) I mean a way
of thinking that makes the explanation  inseparable of the origins of what is
explained, and viceversa.

Will extend later. It is not a matter of an external "description of how is it
that we arrived at this", but that the history of a given situation is at the
same time its actual working, and the other way round: that history cannot be
understood without engaging in its actual working.
