This book discusses the positions taken by Marx and Engels and the main subsequent traditions with respect to central moral questions. On some such questions, of course, Marxism is silent (for example, concerning personal relations, and the moral virtues of the individual) and that fact is itself discussed. On others, its main thinkers and actors have taken a number of characteristic positions (often without admitting to doing so). The author is as much concerned with the constraints Marxism sets upon what moral positions can be adopted as with the varieties of such positions within Marxism. His general assumption is that Marxism makes a number of major moral claims and that its appeal has always been in large part a moral one. Readership: students and general readers interested in Marxism, philosophy, social sciences and religion.
