TANTO METICOLOSO QUANTO ILLUMINANTE
— THE GUARDIANMarx il profeta lo “scienziato”, il filosofo della prassi: che cosa resta, in questo primo scorcio di terzo millennio, del pensatore forse più discusso, temuto e influente degli ultimi centocinquant’anni? Con questa raccolta di articoli e studi, redatti nell’arco di quasi sessant’anni ma rielaborati per l’occasione, il principale storico marxista si pone alla testa di una tendenza che da qualche tempo, dopo l’eclissi degli anni Ottanta e Novanta, sta riportando a una rilettura radicale dell’autore delCapitale.

Dialectical MaterialismHenri Lefebvre
Preface by Stefan Kipfer
Translated by John Sturrock
Table of Contents



The first U.S. edition of an important French Marxist textWith the aim of widening the scope of Marxist theory, Henri Lefebvre finished Dialectical Materialism just before the beginning of World War II and the Resistance movement against the Vichy regime.

Transkription u. HTML-Markierung: J.L. Wilm für das Marxists’ Internet Archive.<135> Das Erscheinen des dritten Bandes des „Kapital“ ist an der bürgerlichen Ökonomie ziemlich spurlos vorübergegangen. Aus dem „fröhlichen Jagen“, das Sombart(1)erwartet hatte, ist nichts geworden. Kein neuer Kampf der Geister ist entstanden, und das „Streiten in majorem scientiae gloriam“ ist unterblieben. Denn auf theoretischem Gebiete führt heute die bürgerliche Ökonomie keine frischen und fröhlichen Kämpf…
