Abstract:

After Marxism calls for a new radical coalition centered around morality and utopian sensibility. The book explores the kinds of commitments, values, and approaches to social realities that may still be described as radical today. These include the determination to end every form of oppression a freedom to combine many different theories and kinds of analysis an open and experimental attitude an appreciation of modernity's great promise of being on our own an understanding that radical social change encompasses attitudes and behaviors, as well as structures and systems and a commitment to uniting the various potential radical groups, strands, and energies into a new radical coalition, a heterogeneous "we" founded on a deep sense of solidarity.
