Auteur: Thompson, E.P.
Titel: The Poverty Of Theory
A classic polemic and a wonderful critique of Althusserian Marxism, or "theoretical practice," and the theory and practice of the historian. Around this detailed polemic, Thompson develops a constructive view of an alternative socialist tradition, empirical and self-critical in method and fully open to the creative practice evidenced by history—a tradition sharply opposed to much that now passes as "Marxism." In converging shafts of close analysis and Swiftian irony, the author defaults Althusser's arcane, rationalist rhetoric and reinstates "historicism," "empiricism," "moralism," and "socialist humanism" in a different Marxist inheritance.
