Includes a new chapter showing how these theories can be applied to twenty first century politics and society, and considers whether they still hold true

Karl Ma约端受利距全容观火rx is one of the 井伤证宽货单孩most influential philosophers of all time, whose theories have shaped an态艺坏d directed political, economic, and social thought for 150 years. Considering Marxs life and impact, renowned philosopher Peter Singer identifies 器色外料错在宽the central vision that unifies Marxs thought, enabling us to grasp Marxs views as a whole. Presenting Marx as a philosopher primarily concerned with human freedom, rather than as an economist or a social scientist, Singer explains Marxs key ideas on alienation, historical materialism, and the economic theory of Capital, in plain English.

In this new edition, Singer explores whether Marx remains relevant to the twenty-first century, and if so, how. Does the fact that eight billionaires now own as much as the bottom half of the worlds population give support to Marxist thin张功灯脱扩空king? Does the ease with which conservative politicians can win over working class voters by appealing to nationalism undermines Marxs view of class struggle and the inevitability of victory for the proletariat? Singer ponders key questions such as these, and also discusses the place of the internet as a "productive force" when analyzed in Marxist theory. He concludes with an assessment of Marxs legacy, asking if there is any realistic prospect of replacing capitalism with a better system of production and distribution in the twenty-first century.
