Marxism, Intellectuals and Politics sheds important new light on some long standing debates, as well as addressing a range of contemporary themes. What challenges have contemporary social and philosophical developments present to Marxism? How extensive are the prospects for emancipatory change in capitalist societies? More specifically, what ought the political role of the intellectual to be? How have Marxist approaches contributed to understanding the intellectual's role? Addressing these questions, and many more, this text contains essays on Marx's conception of the intellectuals, Lenin and Trotsky, Gramsci, Adorno, Sartre, Analytical Marxism and Post-Marxism, as well as thematic chapters exploring such issues as the role of the critical Marxist intellectual in contemporary medias, the challenge posed by feminism to the Marxist view of the intellectual, intellectual labour, exploitation and class analysis, and the very nature of intellectual critique itself.
