Marx's Open-Ended Critique

  • John Bellamy Foster
Keywords: Philosophy, Marxism

Abstract

Against attempts to characterize Marx as a dogmatic and deterministic thinker, it is precisely the open-endedness of his criticism that accounts for historical materialism's staying power. This openness has allowed Marxism to continually reinvent itself, expanding its empirical and theoretical content and embracing ever larger aspects of historical reality.
