Marx Beyond Marx: Lessons on the Grundrisse

Posted: August 5, 2010 in 1978

“In 1978, at the invitation of Louis Althusser, Negri presented a series of seminars on Marx’s Grundrisse in Paris. This is the book of those seminars. Negri, a leading figure of the Italian Autonomia, was in France as a consequence of charges relating to revolutionary action brought against him by the Italian state…Marx beyond Marx aims toward a reconstruction of Marxist theory, a reconstruction that goes beyond Marx by going back to Marx, an angry Marxism summoned by the real possibility of communism…in setting the agenda for such a reconstruction, and in clarifying its priorities, Marx beyond Marx is a pathbreaking and indispensible work.” –Capital and Class (from the dust jacket)
