By Matthias Fritsch
Rereading Marx via Walter Benjamin and Jacques Derrida, The Promise of reminiscence makes an attempt to set up a philosophy of liberation.

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.
Matthias Fritsch is affiliate Professor of Philosophy at Concordia college and cotranslator (with Jennifer Anna Gosetti-Ferencei) of Martin Heidegger’s The Phenomenology of spiritual Life.
