Philosophy and Revolution: From Hegel to Sartre, and from Marx to Mao

By Raya Dunayevskaya

Lanham, MD: Lexington Books, 2003. 372 pgs.

Dunayevskaya’s second book (first edition was New York: Dellacort/Dell Publishing 1973), Philosophy and Revolution traces the revolutionary philosophy of Hegel, including her interpretation of “absolute negativity as new beginning,” and highlights Marx’s “new continent of thought” and Lenin’s “philosophic ambivalence.” She then examines the theories of Trotsky, Mao, and Sartre, and finally the “economic reality and dialectics of liberation” in the 1960s-1970s revolts in Africa, Eastern Europe and the US. This edition includes an introduction by Erich Fromm and additional material from her work in the 1980s.
