The Next American Revolution?
Frontiers of Philosophy in China (2014)
  • David Schweickart
Marx is concerned with theory that not only interprets but also changes the world. A central issue is thus the transition from capitalism to communism, a topic rarely considered by critics of capitalism today. An important exception is Gar Alperovitz, who, although eschewing the word "communism," argues that we need "a new system" and sketches a transition strategy for moving "beyond capitalism." This paper elaborates and evaluates this strategy.
