Description

Anyone who lived through the 20th century will have a complex relationship with Karl Marx; some will see socialism as the glorious road not traveled and others will see him as the folly we defeated. Those who came to political consciousness in the 21st century, though, will have virtually no notion of him at all, he’s a relic, a demon from the past, and socialism is simply an epithet used during political debate.

Robert Paul Wolff, emeritus professor of African American Studies and Philosophy at the University of Massachusetts, Amherst, is the author of twenty-one books on the history of modern philosophy, social and political philosophy, the philosophy of education, economics, and Afro-American Studies. His is one of philosophy’s most powerful voices articulating alternatives to capitalism including reconsiderations of socialism and anarchism.
