Capitalism, Critique, and Utopia
A source of knowledge about contemporary critical theory. * Marx and Philosophy Review of Books * The legacy of Hegel's concepts and method within Marx's thinking is one of the most decisive and most contested issues in contemporary critical theory. In the last two decades, new interpretations of Hegel and a renewed interest in the diagnostic power of Marx's writings have challenged many of the established assumptions and made a full reassessment of that key theoretical nexus necessary. This volume, which brings together up-and-coming scholars and some of the best experts in the field, is a major contribution towards that goal. * Jean-Philippe Deranty, Associate Professor, Macquarie University, Sydney, Australia * These vital and necessary essays argue for the renewal and refashioning of the radical tradition of Hegelian-Marxism. Collectively, the seek to install a materialist Hegel; an always Hegelian Marx; a formation of critical theory driven by the force of the negative and struggles for recognition; and, above all, for tomorrow's socialism in which social freedom and democratic self-determination might come to be. Urgent and important. * J.M. Bernstein, University Distinguished Professor of Philosophy, New School for Social Research, U.S.A. *
