Marx Through Post-Structuralism: Lyotard, Derrida, Foucault, Deleuze (Bloomsbury Studies in Continental Philosophy)

Simon Choat


Marx via Post-Structuralism offers an intensive severe exam of the readings of Marx given through 4 post-structuralist thinkers, all key figures in Continental philosophy: Jean-François Lyotard, Jacques Derrida, Michel Foucault, and Gilles Deleuze. Arguing that either Marx and the post-structuralists search to supply a certainly materialist philosophy, the writer goals to improve a greater knowing of either Marx and post-structuralism and in so doing to mirror at the chances and difficulties for materialist philosophy extra largely.

Against the typical assumption that post-structuralism starts off with a rejection of Marx, Choat argues that Marx has been a key impact on post-structuralist proposal and that every of the 4 thinkers tested affirms Marx's modern importance. via how those thinkers have learn Marx - analysing their direct reviews, unstated makes use of, and implicit criticisms - the ebook demonstrates that there's a specified and unique post-structuralist method of Marx that enables us to learn him in a brand new light.
