HISTORICAL MATERIALISM BOOK SERIES

THE CONTINUED FAILURE OF CAPITALISM TO SOLVE ITS OWN PROBLEMS SUBSEQUENT TO
THE COLLAPSE OF 'ACTUALLY-EXISTING-SOCIALISM' SHOWS THERE IS A NEED FOR A
SERIOUS LONG-TERM BOOK PUBLISHING PROGRAMME. SUBJECTED TO THE WHIMS OF
FASHION, MOST MAINSTREAM PUBLISHERS HAVE MISTAKENLY ABANDONED ANY SYSTEMATIC
PRODUCTION OF MARXIST THEORETICAL WORK THAT THEY MAY HAVE ENGAGED IN DURING
THE 1970S AND EARLY 1980S. THE HM BOOK SERIES ADDRESSES THIS GREAT GAP WITH
ORIGINAL MONOGRAPHS, TRANSLATED TEXTS AND REPRINTS OF ORIGINAL CLASSICAL
WORKS. 
AT LEAST THREE TITLES WILL BE PUBLISHED EVERY YEAR.

The Theory of Revolution in the Young Marx


Michael Löwy

This book proposes a Marxist analysis of young Marx's intellectual
evolution, from left neo-Hegelianism to his new philosophy of praxis. It
distinguishes itself from most other books on the early Marx by its object:
the theory of (proletarian) revolutionary self-emancipation, and its method:
to understand the movement of Marx's political and philosophical ideas in
relation to the most radical currents in the labour movement of his time
(beginning with Chartism and the uprising of the Silesian weavers in 1844).
The central theoretical argument of the author is that Marx's philosophy of
praxis - first formulated in the Theses on Feuerbach - is at the same time
the founding stone of a new world view, and the methodological basis for the
theory of revolutionary self-emancipation.


Readership: Students, lecturers or any people interested in politics, the
labour movement, Marx, as well as academic libraries.


Michael Löwy, Ph.D. (1974) in Human Sciences, Sorbonne, is Research Director
in Sociology at the Centre National de la Recherche Scientifique, Paris. He
has published on Marx, Lukács and Walter Benjamin, as well as (with Robert
Sayre) Romanticism Against the Tide of Modernity (Duke, 2001).
