Marx and the Earth
An Anti-Critique
In this compelling anti-critique the founders of the Eco-socialist school of thought respond to their chief intellectual detractors.
Over a decade ago Foster and Burkett introduced a revolutionary understanding of the ecological foundations of Marx’s thought, demonstrating that Marx’s concepts of the universal metabolism of nature, social metabolism, and metabolic rift prefigured much of modern systems ecology. In this volume, Foster and Burkett expand on this analysis in the process of responding to recent ecosocialist criticisms of Marx.
