This classic study by Henri Lefebvre "raises the question whether today we must study Marx as we study Plato, or rather whether Marx's work retains a contemporary value and significance; in other words, whether his work contributes to an elucidation of the contemporary world." For Lefebvre, Marx's thought remains a key--perhaps even "the" key--to an understanding of modern societies and modern reality.

Book Description Penguin, UK, 1972. Soft Cover. Book Condition: Good. Reprint. 12mo. 214 indexed pages. An exposition, in one field, of the perennial relevance of Marx's work. ‘Marxian thought alone is not enough but it is indispensable for understanding the present-day world.‘ Thus Henri Lefebvre, Professor of Sociology at the University of Paris, sets out to examine Marx as a general theorist of society and of the nature of social reality and to show that there is a coherent and systematic sociology in his writings. Professor Lefebvre examines the theoretical outlines of this sociology in ‘Marxian Thought and Sociology‘ and ‘The Marxian Concept of Praxis‘; and then discusses ‘Ideology and the Sociology of Knowledge‘ and ‘Sociology and Social Classes‘. His final chapter, entitled ‘Political Sociology: Theory of the State‘, sheds some new light on the very core of Marxian thought. This classic study by Henri Lefebvre raises the question whether today we must study Marx as we study Plato, or rather whether Marx's work retains a contemporary value and significance; in other words, whether his work contributes to an elucidation of the contemporary world. 12mo.
