Reviews - What do customers think about Language and Production: A Critique of the Paradigms (Boston Studies in the Philosophy of Science)?

This would have made old Lukacs happy  Apr 27, 2000
Gyorgy Markus was a member of the so-called Budapest Circle in socialist Hungary of the 60s. This grouping of brilliant students was gathered around the Marxist philosopher Gyorgy Lukacs. While Markus' other comrades in the Budapest Circle such as Agnes Heller and Ferenc Feher have drifted far away from Marxism and have become vituperative critics of socialism, this book shows that only Markus has continued Lukacs' great tradition of laboring towards the renewal of Marxism and socialism. Markus devotes the first part of the book to a briliant and comprehensive critique of the so-called "paradigm of language" as it has been represented by Wittgenstein, Levi-Strauss, Gadamer and Habermas. He points out here that all these philosophies seem to fall back into some kind of utter fatalism under the inexorable weight of linguistic reality. Marx on the other hand with his "paradigm of production" is able to lend a more balanced viewpoint on the tension between the "human condition" and the "human striving" for a better society (as Markus demonstrates in the second part of his book). Markus seems to continue, in a positive Marxist direction, the earlier model introduced by Heller regarding the "concept of needs" in Marx. The third and last part of the book is rather difficult going because too condensed, but it is apparently an exposition of Markus' own understanding, practice and reconstruction of historical materialism.
