“What I hear Dunayevskaya saying above all is that we have reached the point in history where real freedom is attainable, if we are willing to commit ourselves to a more inclusive definition of freedom than has ever been attempted. If indeed Marx was moving in such a direction, we can’t leap forward from Marx without understanding where he left off, and what he left to us.” — Adrienne Rich, from the Foreword
“I doubt whether any commentator since Jean Hyppolite has succeeded better in such a Hegelian interpretation of Capital.”—Louis Dupré, The Owl of Minerva
