Socialist Humanism: An International Symposium

£19.99

Product description

Good condition hardback. Some wear to dust jacket. Minimal wear to cover. Well bound. Minor foxing on first few pages. Otherwise internally clean and bright.

Marx's oppressed worker is no longer a relevant symbol. Despite theoretical distinctions, the differences between the practical frustrations to individual freedom under communism and capitalism diminish yearly.

These essays - all but five written specially for this book - represent many differing opinions from both sides of the Iron Curtain and from non-aligned countries, but they share a sense of man's lost identity and unfulfilled potential. No collection as diverse as this could hope to provide a solution, but characteristic of all the contributions is their concern with humanist ideals and the belief that man may yet overcome the immense practical barrier.

The authors include Lucien Goldmann, Léopold Senghor, Herbert Marcuse, Adam Schaff, Ernst Bloch, Bertrand Russell, Norman Thomas, Richard Titmuss and Danilo Dolci, and among the topics they discuss are Renaissance Humanism, Gandhi, Existentialism, Utopias, Psycho-Analysis, Alienation, Christianity, Labour and Law.
