“For everyone who is seriously interested in the forces which form and deform the present and the future, this book is to be most warmly recommended.” —Erich Fromm, from the foreword to the German edition

“Whereas earlier interpretations limit the revolutionary impact of Hegel’s thought to the sociopolitical order, Dunayevskaya aims at a total liberation of the human person…. She assumes within her theory of class struggle issues as diverse as feminism [and] black liberation.” —Louis Dupré, Yale University

“There are few better guides to grasping Marx’s philosophy and his theory of revolution (and the internal relation between the two) than Raya Dunayevskaya. And when one adds the impressive insights on how to apply both in the present period, it is evident that this is a work that no serious radical—scholar or layperson—can afford to miss.” —Bertell Ollman, New York University

“Dunayevskaya … has discovered a concept of freedom in Hegel that engages us to see freedom as a self-determination that is a free release rather than a movement of becoming other…. Should feminists bother with Hegel? Dunayevskaya’s voice returns us to an affirmative response. While Hegel used his own analysis to affirm the subordination of women, there is still much in his analysis of the pathway to freedom, especially in the Logic, that is not exclusively male but which helps us to reflect on a truly human freedom.” —Patricia Altenbernd Johnson, University of Dayton
