Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Lucien Goldmann (July 20, 1913 in Bucharest but grew up in Boto ani, Romania - October 8, 1970 in Paris) was a French philosopher and sociologist of Jewish-Romanian origin. As a professor at the EHESS in Paris, he was an influential Marxist theorist. While many Parisian leftists staunchly upheld Marxism's "scientificity" in the 1950s and 1960s, Lucien Goldmann insisted that Marxism was by then in severe crisis and had to reinvent itself radically if it were to survive. He rejected the traditional Marxist view of the proletariat and contested the structuralist movement. In fact, the popularity of such trends on the Left Bank was one reason why Goldmann's own name and work were eclipsed - this despite the acclaim of thinkers as diverse as Jean Piaget and Alasdair MacIntyre, who called him "the finest and most intelligent Marxist of the age."show more
