Political Ideologies In Action: Socialism: Post and Neo-Marxism

A guide created for John Hultgren's Political Ideologies in Action: Socialism in the United States (POL4241.01)

Quick Description

Neo-Marxism combines Max Weber's notions of social inequality, status, prestige and power, with Marxist philosophy, which concentrates on a simple economic class conflict between the workers and the capitalists. Orthodox ideologists argue that a reformation of Marxism is impossible, yet a new movement for social equality has taken root, Neo-Marxism. The difference between the two, some argue, is the notion of materialism and economy for the traditional Marxists and cultural issues for non-orthodox, or neo-Marxists.
