Reviews

"Marx, again! (with Steven Cenci’s nice translation) is an enjoyable read that is often marked by poetically infused philosophical language that gracefully propels the narrative forward. Despite its brevity as a mini-monograph, this book is a very erudite text – with a broad range of intertextual references – that draws upon the legacy of European philosophy (from Plato to Žižek) and a number of Italian thinkers (Roberto Fineschi, Giovanni Gentile, and Aldo Masullo)."

- Mirko Hall, Marx and Philosophy Review of Books



Marx, Again!
by Diego Fusaro


In this radical new book, Dr Diego Fusaro examines the current neo-liberal world through the lens of Marx. The present age has declared itself to be post-ideological, and yet it is the most ideological age of all. Only one ideology has survived, linked to capitalism, the very concrete abstraction which dominates as a real economic fanaticism.

​"Diego Fusaro’s book invites us, in an original and striking fashion, to rethink and rediscover Marx following the fall of the Berlin Wall. The total domination of capitalism, the new world system, compels us to stop recounting edifying histories, even if it is the history of the ‘freedom of the moderns’."

- André Tosel. Professor Emeritus of Philosophy, University of Nice.

"I share Diego Fusaro’s analysis: whereas Marx by himself is not enough today, it is also not possible to understand, criticise and finally overcome the contradictions of triumphant capitalism without Marx. ... From Fusaro’s text emerges a Marx who is freed from dogmatism, scientism and the myth of guaranteed progress, but not from the ability to criticise injustice and to propose a real emancipation of humankind. A non-Marxist Marx…"

- Gianni Vattimo, Professor Emeritus of Theoretical Philosophy, University of Turin.
 
"At a time when we are witnessing a centralisation of power, concentration of wealth and commodification of everyday life, returning to Marx is indispensable for a critical philosophy of the contemporary. Diego Fusaro’s superbly written book provides an original reading of Marx’s metaphysics and its paradoxical fusion of idealism with materialism. What emerges is an ethical vision of politics that seeks to overcome the fantasised necessity of capitalism in the direction of a ‘cosmopolitan communitarianism as the truth of social life’. Whatever the problems and deficiencies of Marx (and they are legion), Fusaro’s Marxian meditations deserve the widest possible hearing."
- Dr Adrian Pabst, Reader in Politics, University of Kent.
