Marxism and Biology

(p.67) 2 Marxism and Biology

Carsten Strathausen

University of Minnesota Press

The second chapter on “Marxism and Biology” begins with a succinct account of the volatile relation between Marxist philosophy and Darwinian theory from the mid-19th to the mid-20th century. This history informs my close reading of the hitherto ignored, yet seminal dispute in 1968 between the Marxist Louis Althusser and the biologist Jacques Monod on the proper definition of science and its relevance for modern politics and human cultural evolution.
