Join Etienne Balibar in conversation with Peter Hallward, as he discusses The Philosophy of Marx, a book which Yanis Varoufakis referred to as ‘a book for the ages’.
In The Philosophy of Marx, Etienne Balibar provides an unsurpassed introduction to Marx and hisfollowers. Written by one of political theory’s leading thinkers, it examines all the key areas ofMarx’s writings in their wider historical and theoretical context—including the concepts of classstruggle, ideology, humanism, progress, determinism, commodity fetishism, and the state. ThePhilosophy of Marx is a gateway into the thought of one of history’s great minds. Now published in an updated edition with a new introduction and two new texts, The Philosophy of Marx is now regarded a classic work.
Etienne Balibar is a French Marxist philosopher and the most celebrated student of Louis Althusser. He is also one of the leading exponents of French philosophy and the author of Spinoza and Politics, The Philosophy of Marx and co-author of Race, Nation and Class and Reading Capital.
Peter Hallward teaches at the Centre for Research in Modern European Philosophy at Kingston University, London. He is the author of several books including Absolutely Postcolonial, Badiou: A Subject to Truth, Out of This World: Deleuze and the Philosophy of Creation, and Damming the Flood.
