Praise

“Metaphilosophy establishes Lefebvre’s place among the twentieth century’s very greatest Marxist thinkers. Arguing that the idea of philosophy can only be realized by going beyond philosophy itself, Lefebvre opens philosophy up to the concerns of everyday life and love, mass media and synthetics, consumerism and nuclear apocalypse, in a breathtakingly original vision of what truly radical thought might be. First written in French half a century ago, the remarkable challenges that it poses remain as significant as ever. There will not be a more important work of philosophy published this decade.”
—David Cunningham, Institute for Modern and Contemporary Culture, University of Westminster

“A one-time Resistance fighter and member of the French Communist party, Lefebvre …argues that to be less fatalistic and more creative in confronting the world’s problems, philosophical thinking will need to be more poetic, as it was at its beginning … Recommended.”
—B.T. Hutchinson, Metropolitan State University of Denver

Praise for Henri Lefebvre:

“One of the great French intellectual activists of the twentieth century.”
—David Harvey

“The last great classical philosopher.”
—Fredric Jameson

“It is not excessive to claim that he is the ecophilosopher of the twenty-first century.”
—Stanley Aronowitz
