The classic analysis of how particular political and cultural ideas come to dominate society.

The publication of For Marx and Reading Capital established Louis Althusser as one of the most influential figures in the Western Marxist tradition. On Ideology charts Althusser’s critique of the theoretical system unveiled in his own major works, and his developing practice of philosophy as a “revolutionary weapon.”

Reviews

  • One reads him with excitement. There is no mystery about his capacity to inspire the intelligent young.

    Eric Hobsbawm
  • Althusser traversed so many lives—so many personal, historical, philosophical and political adventures; marked, inflected, influenced so many discourses, actions and existences by the radiant and provocative force of his thought—that the most diverse and contradictory accounts could never exhaust their source.

    Jacques Derrida
