Raya Dunayevskaya

Raya Dunayevskaya was the founder of Marxist Humanism in the United States. Philosophy and Revolution is the second work of what the author called her "trilogy of revolution." These works represent the development of her 1953 breakthrough on Hegel's Absolute Idea, when she saw within the Absolute Idea a movement from practice as a well as a movement from theory. She perceived this unity as a vision of a new human society.
