Marxism and Philosophy
Marxism and Philosophyis Karl Korsch’s masterwork. In it he argues for a re-examination of the relationship between Marxist theory and bourgeois philosophy, and insists on the centrality of the Hegelian dialectic and a commitment to revolutionary praxis. Although widely attached in its time,Marxism and Philosophyhas attained a place among the most important works of twentieth-century Marxist theory, and continues to merit critical reappraisal from scholars and activists today.
Karl Korsch(1886-1961) was a prominent Geman Marxist theorist, writer, and revolutionary. He was a member of the German Communist Party until the 1920s, and went into exile in 1933, eventually residing in the United States.
