The Two Marxisms: Contradictions and Anomalies in the Development of Theory
From the back cover: In The Two Marxisms sociology and Marxism complement and confront one another in a book that provides for Marxist theory what The Coming Crisis of Western Sociology did for contemporary sociological theory - a severe but constructive critique. This final volume of his trilogy, "The Dark Side of Dialectic", analyzes the tensions between "scientific Marxism" with its search for lawful determinism and "critical Marxism" with its philosophy of practice and its art of critique. It charts the evolution of Marxist theory, particularly as it developed within its founders' own lifetime, offering a new appreciation of Engels and an original analysis of the differences between him and Marx. Finally, Gouldner brings into focus the contradiction between Marsixm's reliance on a centralized state and its quest for human emancipation.
