As the Iron Curtain was shattered recently in Eastern Europe, revealing a diversity of cultural traditions lost during the recent past, so too the curtain which has hidden Karl Marx's writings for many years seems to be crumbling. Its disappearance reveals a rich complexity of traditions and visions that underlay his social, political, and economic theory. Marx and Aristotle brings together an outstanding multidisciplinary collection of recent scholarship, most written especially for this volume, to look further behind this historical veil by examining the influence of classical Greek philosophy, especially the thought of Aristotle and Epicurus, on Marx.
