Books received – three Marxist classics from Verso: Lefebvre, Althusser et. al. and Goldmann

Books received – three Marxist classics from Verso. Henri Lefebvre’s Metaphilosophy, the first complete English translation of Althusser, Balibar, Establet, Macherey and Rancière’s Reading Capital and Lucien Goldmann’s The Hidden God.

Metaphilosophy is a book I’ve wanted to get translated into English for a long time. It is one of Lefebvre’s most important works, and provides a basis for the arguments he would develop in many of his more concrete works on the city, space, everyday life and so on. David Fernbach did a great job translating this difficult text. I edited the translation, provided most of the notes, and wrote the introduction.IMG_1592 copy.jpg
