Daniel Bensaïd: From the Actuality of Revolution to the Melancholic Wager is the first systematic full-length study of Bensaïd’s renovation of Marxism. Bensaïd, a student leader during the May '68 revolt and founder of the Ligue communiste révolutionnaire, was an exemplar of a creative and open liberatory Marxism, leaving a vast oeuvre for a new generation of Marxists to explore. Much of Bensaïd’s writing remains untranslated into English, and Roso’s volume offers a comprehensive critical overview.

This volume offers a critical re-assessment of the thought of Ernst Bloch, best-known for his groundbreaking study The Principle of Hope and one of the most significant European thinkers and public intellectuals of the twentieth century. It explores Bloch’s life, work and reception; his debt to Marx and Hegel; his central concepts of hope and utopia; his affinities with philosophers such as Gramsci and Žižek; and his radical reframing of our understanding of history, society and culture. Above all, this volume examines the relevance of Bloch’s ideas today, in a world still shot through with economic inequality and social injustice.

Im Oktober 1820 erschienen erstmals Hegels „Grundlinien der Philosophie des Rechts“. Gemäß der Erläuterung des Autors handelte es sich bei dem Werk um einen „Leitfaden“ für die Hörer seiner Vorlesungen. 200 Jahre später lässt sich die Frage stellen, in welche Richtungen dieser Leitfaden seine Leser geführt hat. Welche Perspektiven wurden und werden weiterhin durch das Werk eröffnet? Und an welchen Stellen haben die Leser den Faden fallenlassen, statt ihm weiter zu folgen? Dafür reicht es nicht festzustellen, dass die „Grundlinien“ auch noch das gegenwärtige Denken begleiten müssen. Gefragt ist vielmehr etwas Anderes: Inwiefern ist eine Rechtsphilosophie nach Hegel – im Doppelsinn von post und secundum – gegenwärtig noch möglich – oder sogar nötig?
This collection is the first comprehensive history of Fichte’s reception in America, highlighting the existence of a long and strong tradition of Fichtean studies throughout the continent and demonstrating the centrality of Fichtean ideas in contemporary discussions of issues such as feminism, social criticism, and decolonial thought. Read and reinterpreted in the highly diverse circumstances across the American continent, Fichte’s ideas are presented in a radically new light, uncovering the Fichtean spirit of self-activity and autonomous thought in an American context.
This book is a philosophical-historical examination of the influence of the knowledge of China imparted by the Jesuits on the thinking of the German Enlightenment in the 18th century. It is not primarily concerned with a comprehensive reconstruction of the philosophy of the thinkers discussed, but rather with the political and intellectual contextualisation of a line of thought that recognised the practical philosophy and state organisation of China as different from that of Europe, while equal to it and in some respects superior to it. This challenged the claim of theology that Christian revelation alone provided access to truth. The volume analyses the opposition to this line of thought, especially on the part of Protestant orthodoxy. It argues that in the German Enlightenment of the 18th century, the possibility emerged to conceive philosophy on the basis of reason as a phenomenon not limited to Europe but as a path followed under different conditions in China.
Was versteht der große Philosoph der Freiheit, Hegel, unter dem Begriff, der seinen Untersuchungen zugrunde liegt? Ist Hegels Theorie der Freiheit liberal zu verstehen? Oder ist ihm eine Art von Totalitarismus zuzuschreiben, in dem von persönlicher Freiheit keine Rede sein kann? Um diese und viele andere Fragen zu beantworten, macht es sich die vorliegende Studie zur Aufgabe, Hegels „Grundlinien der Philosophie des Rechts“ philosophisch zu rekonstruieren und seinen Argumentationsgang deutlich darzustellen.

Environmental degradation, crises in care and the predations of finance capital impose new challenges to human reproduction. It is imperative to understand their roots in capitalism. But how best to do so? This book develops the concept of ‘immanent externalities’ to grasp the non-capitalist life processes produced by – and necessary for – capitalist reproduction. Immanent Externalities thus considers the category of reproduction by means of a philosophical re-reading of the three volumes of Marx’s Capital. In doing so, the book locates capitalism’s fundamental contradiction as that between the reproduction of profit-driven activity and ecologically situated human life, suggesting new orientations for theory and practice today.
