New Book

New from Brill’s Historical Materialism series: Becoming Marxist: Studies in Philosophy, Struggle, and Endurance

3rd Jul 2019

Author: Ted Stolze

In Becoming Marxist Ted Stolze offers a series of studies that take up the importance of philosophy for the development of an open and critical Marxism. He argues that an adequate ‘philosophy for Marxism’ must be open to engagement with a diverse range of traditions, texts, and authors – from Paul of Tarsus, via Averroes, Spinoza, and Hobbes, to Althusser, Deleuze, Negri, Habermas, and Žižek. Stolze also explores such practical contemporary issues as the politics of self-emancipation, the nature of Islamophobia, and climate change.

Ted Stolze, Ph.D. (1996), Claremont Graduate University, is Associate Professor of Philosophy at Cerritos College. He is the co-editor (with Warren Montag) of The New Spinoza (University of Minnesota Press, 1997) and has published articles on Spinoza, Hobbes, Althusser, Deleuze, Habermas, Negri, and Žižek.
