Neo-Marxism - Links

approach critical

The doctrines of Marxists who draw upon Marx's early writings, which had a more romantic and utopian emphasis than his later works concerned with economics and historical materialism. Strongly influenced by Hegelian philosophy, a key feature of Neo-Marxism is its self-critical approach, which accepts the need for a review of theory, rather than a rigid acceptance of dogma, as prevalent under Soviet communism. This critical approach, at its peak in the 1960s and 1970s, has seen a number of competing schools.
