About this book

A scholarly exploration of Marx's thought without any favorable or critical ideological agendas, this book opposes the compartmentalization of Marx's thought into various competing doctrines, such as historical materialism, dialectical materialism, and different forms of economic determinism.

Reviews

'...this is a much needed contribution to the debate about Marx and human nature. Its value lies not only in Tabak's account of human nature, but also in the way he resolves various problems in academic Marxism. Even those readers not interested in Marx's theory of human nature, but in Marx's theory of the state or morality, will find fresh material in Tabak's book.' - Marx & Philosophy Review of Books
