Download E-books Por Qué Marx Tenía Razón (Atalaya) PDF

«Este libro se foundationó a partir de una única y llamativa posibilidad: ¿Y si todas las objeciones que se plantean más habitualmente a l. a. obra de Marx estuvieran equivocadas? ¿O, cuando menos, aun no siendo desatinadas del todo, sí lo fueran en su mayor parte? Con esto no pretendo insinuar que Marx no diera jamás un paso en falso. No soy de ese género de izquierdistas que, por un lado, proclaman devotamente que todo es vulnerable de crítica y, al mismo tiempo, cuando se les pide que propongan aunque solo sean tres puntos importantes que se puedan reprochar a las tesis de Marx, reaccionan con malhumorado silencio. Yo mismo tengo mis propias dudas acerca de algunas de las principles marxianas y creo que este libro lo pondrá suficientemente de manifiesto. Pero los angeles verdad es que Marx tuvo los angeles suficiente razón a propósito del suficiente número de cuestiones importantes como para que llamarse marxista pueda ser una descripción razonable de uno mismo.» TERRY EAGLETON   «Terry Eagleton recupera algunas de las objeciones más comunes al marxismo y las contesta una a una, de una forma clara, alejada de tecnicismos y a menudo humorística.» London assessment of Books   «El libro obliga a volver a Marx, a leerlo a los angeles luz de Eagleton o contra Eagleton, y a buscar en su extraordinaria fuerza, otra vez, los angeles fuente posible de una salida a eso que se outline como “nuestra tumba”: el capitalismo.» El País
