Among other things, Marxism has developed into a method for analyzing capitalism, a way of looking at history, and a way of theorizing about the role of the working class in a future society. Marx, however, speaks about a conception of human life that was absent during his lifetime and is still missing today. He sought "the alteration of humans on a mass scale": economics, politics, daily life, and spiritual life. In discussing Marx and spirituality, Smith relates Marx to the thought of William Blake. Readers coming to Marx for the first time, as well as seasoned scholars, will benefit from this book."--BOOK JACKET." ;
