9780708314302: Hegel and Marx after the Fall of Communism (Political Philosophy Now)

The collapse of the Soviet Empire led many to think communism and perhaps socialism were no longer relevant to the modern world. This title presents a balanced argument for the validity, or not, for two of the most important political philosophies of all time. It seeks to reinterpret their philosophies and analyzes the dynamic between Hegelian and Marxist thought. The final chapter also theorizes the possible future for Hegel and Marx in the 20th century.

About the Author:

David MacGregor is Professor of Political Thought at Kings College, an affiliate of the University of Western Ontario, Canada.

Review:

“In his latest book, David MacGregor challenges us to re-think the place we have given to Hegel and Marx in the social theory of a so called 'post-communist' world. In a jolting and lucid argument, MacGregor re-casts the relationship between these two thinkers within a framework that is deeply committed to a critique of everyday forms of domination. In doing so, MacGregor reveals Hegel and Marx to be superbly relevant and profound for an analysis of the practices of the ‘new economy.’” –Joe Hermer, Wolfson College, Oxford

(Joe Hermer)

“. . . MacGregor illustrates the continuing relevance of Marx and even more importantly, Hegel, for comprehending and combating a rapacious free market global capitalism . . . Scholarly exegesis is excitingly combined with biography and a critical assessment of debates, both in Hegel's and Marx's time and since . . . This is an accessible, thought-provoking account that will serve as an excellent introduction for students and demand a response from Hegel-Marx scholars.” –Political Studies

(Tijdschrift voor Filosofie)

“. . . lucid and incisive . . . MacGregor's lucidly expressed and formidably marshalled approach offers a Hegel who has more to say to the present seekers for new ideas and new thinking on the Left than Marx.” –Planet
