Time, Labor, and Social Domination: A Reinterpretation of Marx's Critical Theory
Cambridge University Press, 1995 - Social Science - 273 pages
"Moishe Postone undertakes a fundamental reinterpretation of Karl Marx's mature critical theory. He calls into question many of the presuppositions of traditional Marxist analyses and offers new interpretations of Marx's central arguments. He does so by developing concepts aimed at grasping the essential character and historical development of modern society, and also at overcoming the familiar dichotomies of structure and action, meaning and material life."--Publisher's description.
