Marxism and the Moral Point of View attempts to say what consistent Marxists working within the parameters of the canonical conceptions of Marxism should say about morality. Karl Marx-and most Marxists follow him-was opposed to all moralizing. Indeed Marxist fundamentalism is as pitiful as orthodox Thomism. Analytical Marxism does not have to have such high flown theoretical commitments and such confidence in the power of new analytical tools. A less theoretically ramified analytical Marxism seems to the author plainly a good thing, particularly in the face of Continental obscurities and the obscurities endemic to the Hegelian heritage of classical Marxism. Marx’s account has played, for good or for ill, a key role here and, practically speaking, continues to play that role. .
