The General Will Rousseau, Marx, Communism  - Andrew Levine

Written by Andrew Levine
Format(s): PDF
Language: English

Publication Date: May 15, 2008 | ISBN-10: 0521062284 | ISBN-13: 978-0521062282 | Edition: 1

This bold and unabashedly utopian book advances the thesis that Marx's notion of communism is a defensible, normative ideal. However, unlike many others who have written in this area, Levine applies the tools and techniques of analytic philosophy to formulate and defend his radical, political program. The argument proceeds by filtering the ideals and institutions of Marxism through Rousseau's notion of the "general will." Once Rousseau's ideas are properly understood it is possible to construct a community of equals who share some vision of a common good that can be achieved and maintained through cooperation or coordination that is at once both voluntary and authoritative. The book engages with liberal theory in order to establish its differences from Rousseauean-Marxian political theory. This provocative book will be of particular interest to political philosophers and political scientists concerned with Marxism, socialist theory, and democratic theory.

Review
"...the book represents an important part of the author's ongoing project, begun in several previous books, of rethinking and defending the central ideas of Marxist social thought. The book contains valuable discussions of many topics..." The Philosophical Review

"...unrelentingly intelligent and innovative...What gives this book its particular quality is the author's consistently sensible dealing with important and controversial questions, his ability to shape difficult claims persuasively to the argument in hand." Alan Gilbert, University of Denver
Book Description
This bold and unabashedly utopian book advances the thesis that Marx's notion of communism is a defensible, normative ideal.
