Rereading Marx via Walter Benjamin and Jacques Derrida, The Promise of reminiscence makes an attempt to set up a philosophy of liberation. Matthias Fritsch explores how thoughts of injustice relate to the guarantees of justice that democratic societies have inherited from the Enlightenment. concentrating on the Marxist promise for a classless society, because it features a political promise whose institutionalization resulted in totalitarian results, Fritsch argues that either thoughts and can provide, if taken via themselves, are one-sided and in all probability justify violence in the event that they don't examine the implicit relation among them. He examines Benjamin’s reinterpretation of Marxism after the discontentment of the Russian and German revolutions and Derrida’s “messianic” inheritance of Marx after the breakdown of the Soviet Union. The booklet additionally contributes to modern political philosophy through referring to Marxist social pursuits and German serious concept to debates approximately deconstructive ethics and politics.
