On his death in October 1990, Louis Althusser remained one of the most controversial of the "master thinkers" to emerge from the Parisian intellectual scene of the 1960s. "The Althusserian Legacy" is a collective attempt to draw up a balance sheet, not on Althusser alone but on the questions that his work pushed to the forefront of Marxist theory. It brings together writing in history, philosophy, economics, sociology, and literary criticism, all of it deriving from or significantly inflected by Althusser. The volume contains an interview with Jacques Derrida, long-time friend and colleague of Althusser at the Ecole Normale in Paris, and concludes with two obituaries by Derrida and Gregory Elliott. The contributors include - Etienne Balibar, Alex Callinicos, Michele Barrett, Alain Lipietz and Gregory Elliott. 245pp. N.B. Previous owners inscription to ffep. Reading crease to spine.
