Marx once declared that philosophers have only interpreted the world, but the point is to change it. Demarcation and Demystification examines the ways in which a radical practice of philosophy is possible under the aegis of Marx's 11th thesis, arguing that philosophy's radicality is discovered by understanding that it can only ever interpret the world; that social transformation lies beyond the sphere of its operations. 'Demarcation and Demystification is a major statement on the gulf between what philosophers actually do, and what they think they do.' Matthew R. McLennan, author of Philosophy and Vulnerability

Review:

In Demarcation and Demystification, J. Moufawad-Paul advances a militant approach to philosophy against (at least) two contending schools of thought. Against some Marxist interpretations of Marx's famous 11th thesis, those sweeping accusations that philosophy tout court is idealist, he defends philosophy as a practice of clarity. And against those new materialists who have mistaken their construction of speculative metaphysics, 'new' ontologies, and idiosyncratic objects as synonymous with, or even more important than, transforming the world, he defends a philosophical method grounded in historical materialism and engaged in social struggle. Read this book; it's a manifesto for philosophy. --Devin Zane Shaw, author of Egalitarian Moments: From Descartes to Rancière

About the Author:

J. Moufawad-Paul lives in Toronto and works as casualized contract faculty at York University where he received his PhD in philosophy. He blogs regularly at MLM Mayhem, and he is the author of The Communist Necessity, Continuity and Rupture, and Austerity Apparatus.
