9789004176508: Politics and Philosophy. Niccolò Machiavelli and Louis Althusser's Aleatory Materialism (Historical Materialism Book Series)

The main argument of the book is that for French philosopher Louis 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 and intervention.

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.
