Needs and Desires

An interesting book on this subject is:

Agnes Heller, "The theory of need in Marx", London, Allison and Busby, 1976.

Heller, along with Meszaros, was one of Lukacs' star pupils in the 1950s.
The university library here has 20 of her books on a wide range of subjects
- history, modernity, justice, ethics, everyday life -  but I've never
looked at any of the others.  Her most recent work seems to be
"Biopolitics: the politics of the body, race and nature", which she
co-edited, Aldershot, Avebury, 1996.
