AlterLinks Topic Index

  1. Against Post-Modernism
    A Marxist Critique

    Resource Type: Book
    Published: 1982
    Callinocos argues that the relativism preached by post-modernists leaves us with no objective criteria by which to reject those who would falsify the past.
  2. Bad Marxism
    Capitalism and Cultural Studies

    Resource Type: Book
    Published: 2004
    Cultural Studies commonly claims to be a radical discipline. This book thinks that's a bad assessment. After an introduction critiquing the so-called 'Marxism' of the academy, Hutnyk provides detailed critical analyses of the approaches and theorists of cultural studies.
  3. Break Their Haughty Power
    Resource Type: Website
    Articles on capitalism, socialism, and revolution, from a left-Marxist perspective.
  4. Chomsky on Post-Modernism
    Resource Type: Article
    Published: 1995
    What I find in the writings of the post-modernists is extremely pretentious, but on examination, a lot of it is simply illiterate, based on extraordinary misreading of texts that I know well (sometimes, that I have written), argument that is appalling in its casual lack of elementary self-criticism, lots of statements that are trivial (though dressed up in complicated verbiage) or false; and a good deal of plain gibberish.
  5. Multiculturalism or World Culture?
    On a "Left"-Wing Response to Contemporary Social Breakdown

    Resource Type: Article
    Published: 2000
    Post-modernists are profoundly bored by any questions of economics and technology which cannot be connected to cultural differences. The implicit agenda of the multiculturalists is to present the values associated with intensive capitalist accumulation as "white male", so "non-white" peoples such as Japanese or Koreans who currently embody those values with a greater fervour than most "whites" are ignored.
  6. The Nazis and Deconstruction: Jean-Pierre Faye's Demolition of Derrida
    Resource Type: Article
    Published: 1993
    A review of Jean-Pierre Faye's book 'La raison narrative', which traces the Nazi origins of deconstructionist and post-modernist concepts and terminology. Faye shows, for example, that the concept of 'deconstruction' was introduced in a Nazi journal edited by M.H. Goering, and he shows how theorists who based themselves on Heidegger's writings, such as Derrida, Lyotard, and Lacoue-Labarthe, whitewashed Heidegger's Nazism, treating it as a mere 'detail'.
  7. News & Letters: Draft for Marxist-Humanist Perspectives, 2006 - 2007
    Resource Type: Article
    Published: 2006
    We aim to help fill the void on the question of "what happens after" by creatively rethinking and restating his concept of "revolution in permanence" for today.
  8. Postmodernism Generator
    Resource Type: Website
    A computer program written by Andrew. C. Bulhak using the Dada Engine, a system for generating random text. Each time you click on the page, it generates a brand-new postmodernist essay, completely meaningless, but superficially plausible, just like 'real' postmodernist essays.
  9. Postmodernism, the Academic Left, and the Crisis of Capitalism
    Resource Type: Article
    Published: 2013
    Over the past fifty years, postmodern theory — an umbrella term generally used to refer to such diverse theoretical movements and paradigms as post-structuralism, Lacanian psychoanalysis, deconstruction, and others — has generally dominated most fields in the humanities and some in the social sciences. But the economic meltdown in 2008 and the subsequent chronic crisis in capitalism have dealt a fatal theoretical blow to the varied and nearly ineffable assemblage of perspectives that are often grouped under the rubric of “postmodernism.” postmodernism was indeed tragedy. It was tragedy for the massive amounts of “cultural capital” that it wasted; it was tragedy for the defrauding of intellectual integrity that it represented; it was tragedy for the abandonment of reality that it recommended. Further, like the financial fiasco, it was criminal.
  10. The Socialist Register 1990
    Volume 26: The Retreat of the Intellectuals

    Resource Type: Serial Publication (Periodical)
    Published: 1990
    Essays on the retreat away from socialism and Marxism by Left or formerly Left intellectuals.
