Bibliographic information


'...this is a much needed contribution to the debate about Marx and human nature. Its value lies not only in Tabak's account of human nature, but also in the way he resolves various problems in academic Marxism. Even those readers not interested in Marx's theory of human nature, but in Marx's theory of the state or morality, will find fresh material in Tabak's book.' - Marx & Philosophy Review of Books
