In the newly published Metaphilosophy, Henri Lefebvre works through the implications of Marx’s revolutionary thought to consider philosophy’s engagement with the world.
Designed with this beautiful die-cut cover (cover design by Neil Donnelly), Metaphilosophy is a key text in Lefebvre’s oeuvre and a milestone in contemporary thinking about philosophy’s relation to the world.

Audre Lorde said that anger holds information and power. In the wake of the Orlando shooting, we might extend this and say that grief holds information and power.
