Description

The Power of Negativity: Selected Writings on the Dialectic in Hegel and Marx by Raya Dunayevskaya

Lanham, MD: Lexington Books, 2002. Edited by Peter Hudis and Kevin B. Anderson. 432 pgs.

This collection starts with Dunayevskaya’s 1953 philosophic breakthrough on the contemporary meaning of Hegel’s Absolutes: two letters she termed “the birth of Marxist-Humanism” and returned to throughout her life in order to plumb dialectics in many fora. (The 1953 letters are also available in the Marxist-Humanist Archives and in The Philosophic Moment of Marxist-Humanism pamphlet.) It includes her notes on some of Hegel’s major works; correspondence with Herbert Marcuse, Erich Fromm, Charles Denby and others; talks and essays on the dialectic at work in contemporary mass movements for freedom; and commentary on the dialectic in the works of Marx, Lenin, Fanon, Lukacs, Korsch, and others.

Please note: Marxist-Humanist Initiative does not entirely agree with the selections, editing, and introduction of this collection.
