Postmodernism is a trend in philosophy that has become mainstream, and heavily influences identity politics. But when we ask the question ‘what is postmodernism?’, we are often told that it is indefinable. Indeed it can be summed up as a philosophy that rejects theory, science and the idea of progress.
In this episode of Marxist Voice, Sarah Vedrovitch discusses the United Front, a tactic adopted by the Communist International to connect the communists to the broader working class.
In this talk, Jack Tye Wilson provides a Marxist response to Stalin’s “theory” of ‘socialism in one country’, and outlines the disastrous consequences of the Comintern’s abandonment of internationalism.
Critics of Marxism often suggest that scientific socialism paints a mechanical view of history, without any role for individuality or free will. Daniel Morley discusses the question of necessity and chance, and the need for revolutionary leadership.
