Description

Divergent Paths is the first in a series of three volumes that explores the historiography of the relationship between Hegel and Marx; it sets the terms of the relationship between Marx and Engels, and explores the genesis of the theories of Marxism and Engelsism from the late 19th century to the present day. Given the vast pool of contemporary post Marxist theoretical work, a study like this is sorely needed. This is the most thorough exploration of Marx's ideas from Hegel through to the present day and is absolutely essential reading.show more

Review quote

Levine's study of Marx in these early years is a detailed, well-researched, and stimulating account of his intellectual development and self-understanding...thought provokinggggg -- Joe McCoy, July 2007, Department of Philosophy, University of Nevada-Reno H-German Divergent Paths updates and further develops intellectual issues first raised in The Tragic Deception (1975) and Dialogue Within the Dialectic (1984). The present volume approaches these issues through close reading of the relationship to Hegel not only of Marx and Engels, but of major 20th century Marxists or theorists of Marxism from Lukacs to Roemer. Levine seeks once again to "de-Hegelianize" Marxism by placing history and human activity at the center of Marxist theory and politics. The issues of philosophy and method he takes up are abstract, but nevertheless provide a necessary point of departure for any effort to confront the contemporary crisis of Marxism. -- Arif Dirlik, author of Marxism in the Chinese Revolution Levine's study of Marx in these early years is a detailed, well-researched, and stimulating account of his intellectual development and self-understanding...thought provoking -- Joe McCoy, July 2007, Department of Philosophy, University of Nevada-Reno H-Germanshow more
