The chapter examines left scholarship on neoliberalism and the ways in which neoliberalism has been performed intellectual thought. It considers how political economic thinking has aligned diverse entities with neoliberalism and how other ways of thinking facilitates the realignments that contemporary social movements are enacting. It analyses the different thinking techniques of a small and influential range of Marxist and governmentality theorists of neoliberalism. The author argues that some practices of thinking are more open than others to the multiplicities and diversity of the contemporary world and thus to the realignment of things, people, and persons.

Keywords:   left scholarship, neoliberalism, contemporary social movements, Marxism, governmentality, diversity, realignment
