Manifesto for Marx 3

March 24, 2006

In her article Alison Wolf equated "Marx" with "Marxism". How can someone of her standing make such a basic error? One answer would be that she has an agenda that aims to discredit critical theories in general and Marxism in particular; the other would be that she does not know Marxism.

To find someone other than Marx the most useful scholar for one's particular field does not make Marxism redundant - far from it.
