The Scientific Marx


The Scientific Marx
University of Minnesota Press, 1986 

The Scientific Marx was first published in 1986. Minnesota Archive Editions uses digital technology to make long-unavailable books once again accessible, and are published unaltered from the original University of Minnesota Press editions.Marx advanced Capital to the public as a scientific explanation of the capitalist economy, intending it to be evaluated by ordinary standards of scientific adequacy.

Today, however, most commentators emphasize Marx's humanism or his theory of historical materialism over his scientific claims. The Scientific Marx thus represents a break with many current views of Marx's analysis of capitalism in that it takes seriously his claim that Capital is a rigorous scientific investigation of the capitalist mode of production. Daniel Little discusses the main features of Marx's account, applying the tools of contemporary philosophy of science.

Este un libro clásico sobre Karl Marx, que no se localiza en  las distribuciones comerciales (sólo en algunas bibliotecas), y que hasta la presente fecha no ha sido nunca re-editado, menos en español.
