Description: In Volume Two in Open Court's Creative Marxism series readers have a rare opportunity to eavesdrop on a provocative, wide-ranging conversation between two lively intellects. Marxism and the Call of the Future reproduces an actual discussion between Bill Martin, a DePaul University philosophy professor, and Bob Avakian, the controversial leader of the Revolutionary Communist Party (RCP). Though the scope and relevance of Marxism is at the heart of this spirited exchange, the two also offer up a sharp-witted critique of George W. Bush and touch on animal rights, The Simpsons, secularism and religion, Bob Dylan, and the post-9/11 agenda of the United States.
Synopsis: This book offers readers a rare chance to witness a mainstream thinker challenge an outlaw-activist. Avakian and Martin wrestle with big questions that have to do with the state of the world and the possibility for radical change. The scope and relevance of Marxism, and the nature and reach of communist revolution, are at the heart of this rich and lively dialogue. Avakian and Martin probe a wide range of issues: the place of ethics in a transformative revolutionary politics; Kant, Rousseau, and Hegel; Marx and the question of colonialism and Eurocentrism; the Maoist experience in China; sustainable agriculture and the task of overcoming the urban-rural divide; imperialism and lopsided development in the world, and the effects on social structure and revolution; animal rights; secularism and religion; the post-911 agenda of the U.S. ruling class, the political-social-cultural landscape of the U.S., and the prospects for resistance and revolution; Marxism and the question of homosexuality; the challenges confronting radical and communist intellectuals and the possibilities for engaged, creative intellectual work today.
