View all copies of this ISBN edition:

Marx and the Ancients is the first book-length treatment to detail the relationship between classical Greek philosophy and Karl Marx's critique of political economy. From his dissertation on the physics and astronomy of Epicurus and Democritus to his later economic writings, Marx's view of the classical polis left its mark. George McCarthy argues that this forgotten element in Marx's thought helps clarify his positions on ethics and social justice.

This is an important book. McCarthy uncovers the Greek roots of Marx's thought, especially in Aristotle and Epicurus, with greater depth, subtlety, and thoroughness than anyone else I have read...--Philip J. Kain, Santa Clara University


An examination of the structures and traditions upon which Marx's ideas were founded through analysis of a selection of texts as diverse as the Old Testament to classical ethics of the German Enlightenment.
