Often portrayed as an aloof philosopher, Louis Althusser's work on Niccolo Machiavelli reveals Althusser's deep commitment to political practice. Seeking to challenge the prevailing views on Althusser, Mikko Lahtinen argues that the French thinker cannot be understood from a purely philosophical perspective.

From the Back Cover:

Louis Althusser s interpretation of Niccol Machiavelli has never really been studied in any detail as an analysis of political action and intervention. The same is also true for Althusser s notion of aleatory materialism. Instead, these have conventionally been studied from the viewpoint of a philosophical perspective in which politics is excluded. The objective of the present book thus runs against many of the prevailing views on Althusser. Here the emphasis is placed on Althusser's advancement of a theory of materialist politics. The main argument put forward is that, for Althusser, it was essential to reflect on how the conjunctural understanding of history and reality could offer a theoretical starting point for a subversive political strategy.

About the Author:

Mikko Lahtinen: Mikko Lahtinen, Soc.Sc.D. (1997) in Political Science, University of Tampere (Finland), Ph.D. (2006) in History of Ideas, University of Oulu (Finland), is senior lecturer of Political Science at University of Tampere. He has published widely on the political theory, history of political philosophy from Antiquity to contemporary thought, Niccolò Machiavelli and Renaissance thought, Montesquieu and Enlightenment, and the Marxist theory from Marx to Gramsci and Althusser. His theoretical-methodological work focuses on the development of the 'conjunctural' theory of history and politics. His forthcoming book "The Land of Libries" (in Finnish) concerns public library as a strong democratic element in Finnish society.
