Marx, Marginalism and Modern Sociology offers an original interpretation of Marx's critique of political economy as the basis of a critique of modern economics and sociology. The core of the book is an account of Marx's theory of alienated labour as the basis of Marx's work as a whole. The critical implications of this theory are developed through an analysis of the historical development of liberal social theory from political economy to the modern disciplines of economics and sociology.

Frankfurt/M., Berlin, Bern, Bruxelles, New York, Oxford, Wien. Action theory, phenomenological sociology, pragmatism and (post)structuralism are often seen as mutually exclusive currents of meaning analysis. This book shows that these traditions are actually complementary, and builds a neostructuralist synthesis on this finding. It also outlines the implications of this cultural theoretical synthesis for the field of the social theory. What emerges is a variant of the theory of practice, habit and structuration of society. It shares the contemporary common belief that social theory should be based on cultural theory. Its distinctive mark is that this is done is systematic semiotic terms within a conception which provides mediation between the two most influential schools of semiotics, namely Charles Peirce's American pragmatism and Ferdinand de Saussure's French structuralism. Contents: Critique of Action Theory and Phenomenological Sociology: Meaning and Rational Action in Weber's Sociology -Quarrelling Heirs: Parsons and Schutz - Meaning and Intentional Acts: Schutz's Phenomenological Sociology - Ethnomethodology: Garfinkel's Reconstruction of Schutz and Parsons - From Intentional Action to Structuralism - Neostructuralist Theory of Culture: Saussure's Structuralism Reconstructed - The Specificity of the Saussurean Approach - Neostructuralist Semiotics - Towards a Neostructuralist Social Theory: The Levels of Cultural Analysis - Beyond the Culture/Society Split - Symbolic Signs, Socialization, and the Sacred - Power - Conclusion.

Wer glaubt, Karl Marx sei tot, der irrt. Die Krise des kapitalistischen Systems hat neues Interesse an seinen Ideen geweckt. Eric Hobsbawm, seit seiner Jugend überzeugter Marxist, zeigt, was wir noch heute von Marx lernen können. Ein Leben lang hat sich der Historiker aus Großbritannien mit den Widersprüchen beschäftigt, die seit der Finanzkrise selbst liberale Ökonomen am Weltbild eines schlichten Kapitalismus zweifeln lassen. Hobsbawms neues Buch zeigt, wie der Marxismus in den letzten 150 Jahren die angeblich alternativlosen Regeln der kapitalistischen Wirtschaft in Frage gestellt und widerlegt hat. In Hobsbawm hat Marx seinen souveränen Interpreten für das 21. Jahrhundert gefunden.
