For Marx: by Louis Althusser( Book )

166 editions published between 1965 and 2011 in 11 languages and held by 2,241 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This is the work in which Louis Althusser formulated some of his most influential ideas. For Marx, first published in France in 1968, has come to be regarded as the founding text of the school of "structuralist Marxism" which was presided over by the fascinating and enigmatic figure of Louis Althusser. Structuralism constituted an intellectual revolution in the 1960s and 1970s and radically transformed the way philosophy, political and social theory, history, science, and aesthetics were discussed and thought about. For Marx was a key contribution to that process and it fundamentally recast the way in which many people understood Marx and Marxism

Machiavelli and us by Louis Althusser( Book )

16 editions published between 1997 and 2011 in English and French and held by 538 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Displacing traditional controversies over the Florentine diplomat, Althusser argues for the profound unity of the Machiavellian problematic, as deployed in the revolutionary manifesto of The Prince and the experimental historical comparisons of the Discourses. Machiavelli's apparent theoretical object - the laws of politics or history - is revealed to be a determinate practical objective: the foundation and preservation of a national-popular state. But if Machiavelli can specify the conditions for a fruitful encounter between virtu (political agency) and fortuna (the contingency of the real), his grasp of the necessity of contingency renders him the supreme artisan of an aleatory materialism

Writings on psychoanalysis : Freud and Lacan by Louis Althusser( Book )

11 editions published between 1996 and 2008 in English and held by 353 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A prominent member of the French structuralist movement, Louis Althusser was influential for reinvigorating Marxist thought in France in the 196Os with celebrated works such as For Marx and Reading Capital. Yet many readers are not as familiar with the profound impact of psychoanalysis on Althusser's life and work. Writings on Psychoanalysis gathers, for the first time, Althusser's major essays on psychoanalytic thought. The volume begins with Freud and Lacan, which lays the groundwork for comprehending Althusser's entry into psychoanalysis. Letters to D. was the result of Althusser's fervent reading of Rene Diatkine's paper "Aggressiveness and Fantasies of Aggression," years before Diatkine was his psychoanalyst. Invited by Leon Chertok to participate in the "International Symposium on the Unconscious," at the Tbilisi colloquium, the chapter The Tbilisi Affair presents Althusser's essay "The Discovery of Dr. Freud." The chapter In the Name of the Analysands ... reprints Althusser's "Open Letter to Analysands and Analysts in Solidarity with Jacques Lacan," written the day after the famous meeting on the dissolution of the Ecole Freudienne de Paris. Characterizing Lacan as a "magnificent and pitiful Harlequin," the 'open letter' relates Althusser's untimely outburst at that assembly and the "spectacular and violent intervention he subsequently made in the presence of Lacan." The volume closes with the correspondence between Althusser and Lacan, detailing their first and last meetings with each other and the launching of one of the central alliances of contemporary French thought
