In the twenty-first century, new debates over globalization, 'market society' and the crises of capitalism are leading to a resurgence of interest in Marx's ideas about politics, economics, history and human nature.
This collection of articles brings together the latest work of some of the world's leading Marxist philosophers, along with that of a new generation of young researchers. Based upon work presented at meetings of the recently founded and fast-growing Marx and Philosophy Society, it offers a unique snapshot of the best current scholarship on the philosophical aspects and implications of Marx's thought.
Contributors discuss Marx's moral and political philosophy, his critique of orthodox economics, and his relation to more recent trends in social theory. Although many diverse perspectives are represented, all share a commitment to careful historical scholarship and philosophical clarity and rigour.
This book will be invaluable for advanced undergraduate and graduate students and researchers in philosophy, political theory, and the social sciences.
