Editorial Reviews

"This is a scholarly and well argued treatment of some fundamental and central issues of Marxist theory which will be of great interest to readers in a wide range of disciplines. It presents what will be, to most readers, original and thought-provoking ideas and arguments in a lively and stimulating way." - Sean Sayers, University of Kent, UK "Professor Wendling's project is an important one, and it is developed very well, in very interesting ways, and it will attract anyone who is interested in Marx's philosophy, philosophy of technology, and/or the critique of capitalism.Wendling demonstrates very well the ambivalence toward the human being and the human subject in Marx's work, and indeed she fills out this problem in ways that are remarkable, fascinating, and provocative." - Bill Martin, DePaul University
