Marx (Brief Insight) Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Peter Singer identifies the central vision that unifies Marxs thought, enabling us to grasp Marxs views as a whole. Singer sees him as a philosopher primarily concerned with human freedom, rather than as an economist or a social scientist. He explains alienation, historical materialism, the economic theory of Capital, and Marxs ideas of communism in plain English, and concludes with an assessment of Marxs legacy.

Book News Annotation:

Singer (bioethics, Princeton U.) sets out a central vision of the world that underlies and unites the voluminous writing of economist and political philosopher Marx (1818-83). He covers a life and its impact, the young Hegelian, from God to money, enter the proletariat, the first Marxism, alienation as a theory of history, the goal of history, economics, and communism. He concludes by suggesting what ideas of Marx should be retained and which dropped or revised. Annotation ©2010 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
