Description

This polemical essay defends the foundations of scientific socialism against pseudo-Marxist conceptions prevalent among various philosophical tendencies influenced by the Frankfurt School and contemporary neo-utopianism.

Among the topics covered are the significance of the philosophies of postmodernism and pragmatism, the implications of modern irrationalism's assault on the heritage of the Enlightenment, and the critical role of a historically-directed consciousness in the cognition and understanding of objective political reality. David North also offers perceptive evaluations of the works of such representative figures of neo-utopianism as Ernst Bloch, Hendrik de Man, and Wilhelm Reich.

This work is vital reading for those who wish to gain a deeper insight into the chasm separating Marxism and the various academically fashionable ideological trends.
