Beschreibung:

The end of the Soviet period, the vast expansion in the power and influence of capital, and recent developments in social and aesthetic theory, have made the work of Hungarian Marxist philosopher and social critic Georg Luk cs more vital than ever.The very innovations in literary method that, during the 80s and 90s, marginalized him in the West have now made possible new readings of Luk cs, less in thrall to the positions taken by Luk cs himself on political and aesthetic matters. What these developments amount to, this book argues, is an opportunity to liberate Luk cs's thought from its formal and historical limitations, a possibility that was always inherent in Luk cs's own thinking about the paradoxes of form. This collection brings together recent work on Luk cs from the fields of Philosophy, Social and Political Thought, Literary and Cultural Studies. Against the odds, Luk cs's thought has survived: as a critique of late capitalism, as a guide to the contradictions of modernity, and as a model for a temperament that refuses all accommodation with the way things are.
