Marx with Spinoza

Production, Alienation, History

Translated by Jason Read


A provocative study of the intersection of Spinoza and Marx that shows how their respective philosophies engage overlapping questions and problems

Offers the first translation of Fischbach’s work, and the most important book published in France on Spinoza and Marx, into English

Pairs these philosophers of production who are both critical philosophers of subjectivity

Presents a major study of the points of intersection in the thought of Spinoza and Marx

Develops original approaches to concepts such as alienation, history, and nature

Spinoza and Marx would seem to be two very opposed philosophers. Spinoza was interested in contemplating eternal truths of nature while Marx was interested in the history of capital.
