Marxism as an Instrument of Bourgeois Ideology: A Reply to Ellerman
My latest paper is a response to David Ellerman’s 2010 “Marxism as a Capitalist Tool,” The Journal of Socio-Economics, Vol. 39, pp. 696-700. I invite those interested in reading it to download the paper either here or on my academia.edu profile.
Has Marxism inadvertently contributed to the perpetuation of the capitalist mode of production? David Ellerman answers in the affirmative. In this paper I endeavor to demonstrate that Ellerman’s position stems from a fundamental misunderstanding of Karl Marx and Friedrich Engels’s critique of capital.
