The Philosophy of Marx, Hardback Book


This book, first published in 1977, presents for the first time a serious and systematic assessment of Marx primarily as a philosopher.

It considers all major aspects of Marx's theory - its methodology, its ontological dimensions, its approaches to the descriptions of history and of societies and their economic structures, its alleged predictions and its vision of the future - as well as some of its intellectual antecedents and twentieth-century heirs.

The presentation of Marx's ideas attempts to be at once faithful to them, as distinguished from their reinterpretations by later `Marxists', and yet novel in form and language.

From this unique standpoint, the book aims to bring the student of philosophy and of political ideas to a closer understanding of the intellectual foundations of Marx's Capital and his writings in collaboration with Engels.
