The concept of specific forms of resistance, rooted in Foucault, has come to the fore in radical thought, replacing earlier concepts of emancipation rooted in abstract universals (Marcuse), but at a tremendous cost. Marx’s emancipatory but concrete dialectic of class and ethnicity goes beyond both of these one-sided perspectives. Originally appeared in Logos: A Journal of Modern Society and Culture 12:1 (Winter 2013)  – Editors

Summary: Marx’s holds that the abolition of private property does not necessarily lead to socialism, while he rejects Proudhon’s idea of organizing the distribution of labor. Marx believed that in order to achieve socialism, we must abolish wage labor. Other points of Marx’s, like abstract versus concrete labor, the nature of value, and the split in the category of labor (labor as an activity vs. labor power, the commodity) are also discussed, in the context of a critique of today’s free market advocates.

Was the birth of philosophy in Ancient Greece a reflex and projection of the generic forms of capitalist exploitation, such as exchange-value, money and the commodity-form? Did commodity fetishism and reification exist in Antiquity or are they historically specific to capitalism? If the entire history of philosophy is branded with class-exploitation, is the Hegelian dialectic redundant in critical theory? David Black, introducing one of the themes of his forthcoming book, The Philosophical Roots of Anti-Capitalism, evaluates Alfred Sohn-Rethel’s “anti-philosophical” critique of capitalism–Editors (Image: spiritisabone.files.wordpress.com)
