Synopsis

Synopsis

Louis Althusser is remembered today as the scourge of humanist Marxism, but that was his later incarnation, an identity formed by years grappling with the intellectual inheritance of Hegel and Catholicism. The Spectre of Hegel collects the writings of the young Althusser, before his final epistemological break with the philosopher’s work in 1953. Including his famed essay ‘Ideology and Ideological State Apparatuses’, The Spectre of Hegel gives a unique insight into Althusser’s engagement with a philosophy he would later renounce.

Praise

“The most prominent and innovative Marxist thinker of the postwar period in France.” —John Sturrock, The Word from Paris: Essays on Modern French Thinkers and Writers

“Together with the work of Raymond Williams, Althusser’s writings are the most decisive theoretical influence in the development of British cultural materialism. Together with the work of Foucault, they are the most decisive theoretical influence in American New Historicism.” Richard Elridge, The Persistence of Romanticism: Essays in Philosophy and Literature
 
“[The Spectre of Hegel] proves novel and interesting, filling a gap in our understanding of Althusser's development and allowing us to see some of the lines of thinking which led him to structuralism and thereby to notoriety.” —Capital and Class
