Marx and the Common
From Capital to the Late Writings
Marx and the Common brilliantly reconstructs Marx's connection of the collective dimension of communism to the element of individual realisation
Through an original analysis of a vast range of Marx's writings Basso brings out an articulated historical-theoretical landscape in which the notion of 'individual' is intertwined with the ideas of 'class', 'society' and 'community.' Rooting his analysis in the revolutionary power of the workers' 'acting in common,' Basso brings to the fore an anthropological dynamic in Marx.
