Rezensionen
"Best s approach to rethinking a Marxian dialectical method comes at an extraordinarily appropriate time, one in which, as has so often been said, late capitalism has become an image society and in which aesthetics has in uniquely new historical ways been assimilated into economics. Any Marxism that claims to address the issues and problems of the renewed capitalist and globalized system of today s world must necessarily take some such path as this, which Beverley Best has so productively pioneered." - Fredric Jameson, Distinguished Professor of Comparative Literature, Duke University

"With her beautifully constructed and critically imaginative thesis, Beverley Best enhances our understanding of several key problems in critical theory: how to read Marx, today; how to read aesthetics politically, and political economy as aesthetics; what to do with cognitive mapping ; and how to deal in a lucid way as academics with an economy of obsolescence in ideas. This book is major contribution to the ethics of criticism as well as to the renewal of aesthetics and the study of Marx s method." - Meaghan Morris, Department of Gender and Cultural Studies, University of Sydney, and Chair Professor, Department of Cultural Studies, Lingnan University, Hong Kong

"This is a remarkable book on a topic on which there has been a lot of recent interest: the relevance of Marx and particularly of his method of analysis to the most pressing problems of our time. The author has an excellent grasp of Marx s own writings and of the most important literature dealing with this aspect of his work. The book is a fascinating short course on the history of recent (and not so recent) debates on the history of Marx s dialectical method." - Bertell Ollman, Department of Politics, NYU, and author of Dance of the Dialectic: Steps in Marx s Method…mehr
