Raya Dunayevskaya


Edited by Kevin B. Anderson and Russell Rockwell

Lexington Books, 2012


6:00-8:00 PM

Peace Center

8124 West Third Street

Los Angeles (near West Hollywood area)


Kevin B. Anderson, author of Marx at the Margins

Ana Maillon, community activist and cultural worker

Kathryn F., student activist

This book presents for the first time the correspondence between the Marxist-Humanist and feminist philosopher Raya Dunayevskaya (1910-87) and two other noted thinkers, the Hegelian Marxist philosopher and social theorist Herbert Marcuse (1898-1979) and the psychologist and social critic Erich Fromm (1900-80), both of the latter members of the Frankfurt School of Critical Theory. The letters cover topics such as dialectical social theory, Marxist economics, socialist humanism, the structure and contradictions of modern capitalism, the history of Marxism and of the Frankfurt School, feminism and revolution, developments in the USSR, Cuba, and China, and the New Left of the 1960s. Among the thinkers discussed in the correspondence – some of them quite critically– are Rosa Luxemburg, Theodor Adorno, Jean-Paul Sartre, Simone de Beauvoir, V. I. Lenin, Nikolai Bukharin, Leon Trotsky, Mao Zedong, and Daniel Bell. This volume shows the deeply Marxist and humanist concerns of these thinkers, each of whom had a lifelong concern with rethinking Marx and Hegel as the foundation for an analysis of capitalist modernity and its forces of opposition.

Background reading:

K. Anderson, “Marcuse’s and Fromm’s Correspondence with the Socialist Feminist Raya Dunayevskaya: A New Window on Critical Theory,” Logos, Winter 2012

Sponsored by West Coast Marxist-Humanists, an affiliate of the International Marxist-Humanist Organization
