A rich and accessible introduction to Marx's fundamental concepts from a key intellectual—now updated
Written by one of political theory's leading thinkers, The Philosophy of Marx examines all the key areas of Marx's writings in their wider historical and theoretical context—including the concepts of class struggle, ideology, humanism, progress, determinism, commodity fetishism, and the state. Etienne Balibar opens a gateway into the thought of one of history's great minds.
In this updated edition to this now classic work, Balibar has added a substantial introduction and new material. Complete with key "information boxes" for the student to make the most challenging areas of theory easy to understand, this remains the best available introduction to the most important thinker of the past 200 years.
