9789350020227: The Seductions of Karl Marx

The Seductions of Kar/ Marx is a work in the historicist and humanist traditions of Marxism. Basing itseJf on Marx's theory of the alienation of humanity, it analyses issues like the rise of right-wïng religieus fundarnentalism and communal-fascism, the Asiatic mode of production, the caste question and the hegemony of the imperialist bloc of nations. Locating the trajectory of emancipatory politics, this book reclaims the original space that Marx had discovered the space of communist society that is free from commodity production as well as the dominance of the state. The communism that The Seductions argues for is not to be confused with the Soviet experiment, which as the author mentions, was sabotaged by the Stalinist counterrevolution. On the contrary, the author recalls Marx's statement that communism is humanism and naturalism, as well as the sign for the appropriation of the human essence that is lost in the marshes of globalization, casteism and communalism. Besides dealing with Marx, this book also traverses the philosophical concerns of Plato, Aristotle, Hegel, Freud, Ambedkar, Georg Lukacs, Theodor Adorno, Walter Benjamin and Jürgen Habermas.
