Description: Without denying the contradictory character of Marx s thought, the French philosopher Daniel Bensaid sets out to demonstrate that it was not a philosophy of the end of history, an empirical sociology of classes, or a positive science of economics positing an inexorable progress towards an ineluctable communism. Instead, Marx's 'critique of political economy' encompassed three great critiques of the scientific and political canons of its age -- historical reason, sociological rationality and scientific positivism -- which make this 19th-century thinker relevant to the 21st century of global capitalism. Indeed, we find here a 'post-postmodern Marx' inhabiting a contemporary world replete with contingency, crisis and contradiction. Bensaid's book is an invitation to rediscover our foremost contemporary thinker, Karl Marx.
