About the Author:

Tony Smith is Professor of Philosophy and Political Science at Iowa State University of Science and Technology. He is the author of The Logic of Marx’s Capital, and The Role of Ethics in Social Theory, also published by SUNY Press.

Review:

“Some time ago, most philosophers working within Marxist scholarship took for granted the Hegelian legacy. This has been challenged by the analytic Marxists. Tony Smith has emerged as the most systematic and committed defender of the challenged position today, and the level of his defense is very sophisticated and, therefore, very challenging itself.

“The second half of the book, in which Smith takes on Colletti, Elster, Roemer, and Baudrillard, seems to me especially fine: it is a series of critical reviews, to be sure, but a well-organized series with a very clear set of points, which, in fact, clarify his own perspective with great success.” ― William L. McBride, Purdue University
