Jacques Rancière - Marx in the Woods
As a break from the idealist philosophy, Marx's writings on thefts of wood is considered to be a turning point in the history of communist theory. In his text, Rancière does not only discuss the complex structure of Marx's early concepts, but he does this by such 'wild formalism' that opens the communist horizon towards unfamiliar realms. Defending this approach still today, Rancière in the new introduction written to the book gives also some clues about his difficult relationship with Althusser. The book is translated by Jussi Palmusaari, who also wrote an afterword where he discusses the way Rancière subjects time and history to a certain formalisation through spatiality.
