Marxist Writings on History and Philosophy
Published by Resistance Books
2002, 272pp, ISBN 1876646233, Paperback
Beginning with an article on the aptly-named “long view of history”, this collection of writings brings a dynamic Marxist perspective to key questions of historical development.
Humanity's climb to civilisation, the role of the individual in making history, uneven and combined development, transitional formations, and the relationship between sociology and Marxism — these are some of the topics addressed. Other articles take up important philosophical issues such as the compatibility of Marxism and existentialism, the applicability of dialectical materialism to nature, and alienation.
Radicalising during the Great Depression, George Novack (1905-92) was a longtime activist in the US Socialist Workers Party. He wrote widely from a Marxist standpoint on key questions of history and philosophy and authored numerous Marxist studies of chapters in the development of the United States.
