If the entire history of philosophy is branded with class-exploitation, is the Hegelian dialectic redundant in critical theory? David Black, introducing one of the themes of his forthcoming book, The Philosophical Roots of Anti-Capitalism, evaluates Alfred Sohn-Rethel’s “anti-philosophical” critique of capitalism–Editors (Image: spiritisabone.files.wordpress.com)
