An Oedipal drama for the ages, played out through philosophical polemics, with a twist that haunts history to this day.

Many hold that the transition from Hegel’s materialism to Marx’s materialism signifies a progressive development from an abstract-idealist theory-of-becoming, to a theory of the concrete actions of humans within history. A Failed Parricide offers an innovative reading of this transition, arguing that Marx remained structurally subaltern to Hegel’s conception of the subject that becomes itself in relation to alterity.
