  1. Absent Minds: Intellectuals in Britain
    Resource Type: Book
    First Published: 2006
    An argument against what Collini calls the 'declinist thesis', the belief that contemporary intellectual life is getting increasingly dumbed down and stagnant. Declinists, Collini suggests, are in denial of reality and ignorant of history. Collini also skewers those who, like Edward Said, represent themselves as 'outsiders' while basking in the glamour of in-group recognition.
  2. Against Post-Modernism 
    A Marxist Critique

    Resource Type: Book
    First Published: 1982
    Callinocos argues that the relativism preached by post-modernists leaves us with no objective criteria by which to reject those who would falsify the past.

    First Published: 1982   Published: 1988

    A Systematic Attack on Rationality

    Resource Type: Article
    First Published: 2012
    The suggestion that left and right thinking may be converging on matters scientific will, no doubt, be offensive to some on the left. After all, the right chooses myth over evolution, and oil profits over climate science.
  7. Away with the gatekeepers!
    The bane of cultural appropriation

    Resource Type: Article
    First Published: 2016
    On the the controversies over 'cultural appropriation' and what they reveal about the degradation of contemporary campaigns for social justice.
  8. Bad Marxism
    Capitalism and Cultural Studies

    Resource Type: Book
    First Published: 2004
    Cultural Studies commonly claims to be a radical discipline. This book thinks that's a bad assessment. After an introduction critiquing the so-called 'Marxism' of the academy, Hutnyk provides detailed critical analyses of the approaches and theorists of cultural studies.
  9. Beyond the Hoax 
    Science, Philosphy and Culture

    Resource Type: Book
    First Published: 2008

    Resource Type: Website
    Articles on capitalism, socialism, and revolution, from a left-Marxist perspective.
  11. Chomsky on Post-Modernism 
    Resource Type: Article
    First Published: 1995
    What I find in the writings of the post-modernists is extremely pretentious, but on examination, a lot of it is simply illiterate, based on extraordinary misreading of texts that I know well (sometimes, that I have written), argument that is appalling in its casual lack of elementary self-criticism, lots of statements that are trivial (though dressed up in complicated verbiage) or false; and a good deal of plain gibberish.
  12. The Common Good
    Resource Type: Book
    First Published: 1998
    Interviews with Noam Chomsky on the U.S. and the world.
  13. Communication for and Against Democracy

    First Published: 1989

    First Published: 2009
    Fredric Jameson, a leading voice on the subject of postmodernism, assembles his most powerful writings on the culture of capitalism.
  16. Culture of Complaint
    The Fraying of America

    Resource Type: Book
    First Published: 1993
    Propaganda-talk, euphemism, and evasion are so much a part of American usage today that they cross all party lines and ideological divides. The art of not answering the question, of cloaking unpleasant realities in abstraction or sugar, is so perfectly endemic that we expect nothing else.
  17. Deconstructing Derrida
    Resource Type: Article
    First Published: 2004
    There is little doubt that Derrida was an erudite and learned philosopher, but his erudition was bent towards a destructive aim. In him the unreason of the age found its cunning articulator.
  18. Deconstruction and the Interests of Theory
    Resource Type: Book
    First Published: 1988
  19. Deconstruction: Theory and Practice
    Resource Type: Book

  24. Edward Said, Orientalism
    Reviewed by Malcolm Kerr

    Resource Type: Article
    First Published: 1980
    The book contains many excellent sections and scores many telling points, but it is spoiled by overzealous prosecutorial argument in which Professor Said, in his eagerness to spin too large a web, leaps at conclusions and tries to throw everything but the kitchen sink into a preconceived frame of analysis. In charging the entire tradition of European and American Oriental studies with the sins of reductionism and caricature, he commits precisely the same error.
  25. Eurocentric Anti-Eurocentrism 
    Resource Type: Article
    First Published: 2001
    What is so puzzling about anti-Eurocentric histories, especially the histories of capitalism, is that, without exception, they are based on the most Eurocentric -- not to mention bourgeois -- assumptions.
  26. Fashionable Nonsense: Postmodern Intellectuals' Abuse of Science 
    Resource Type: Book
    First Published: 1997   Published: 1998
    The authors criticize postmodernism in academia for its misuses of scientific and mathematical concepts in postmodern writing. Fashionable Nonsense examines two related topics: (1) The incompetent and pretentious usage of scientific concepts by a small group of influential philosophers and intellectuals; (2) the problems of cognitive relativism, the idea that "modern science is nothing more than a 'myth', a 'narration' or a 'social construction' among many others". The stated goal of the book is not to attack "philosophy, the humanities or the social sciences in general...[but] to warn those who work in them (especially students) against some manifest cases of charlatanism," and in particular to "deconstruct" the notion that some books and writers are difficult because they deal with profound and difficult ideas. "If the texts seem incomprehensible, it is for the excellent reason that they mean precisely nothing." The book includes long extracts from the works of Jacques Lacan, Julia Kristeva, Paul Virilio, Gilles Deleuze, Félix Guattari, Luce Irigaray, Bruno Latour, and Jean Baudrillard who are considered by some to be leading academics of Continental philosophy, critical theory, psychoanalysis or social sciences. Sokal and Bricmont set out to show how those intellectuals have used concepts from the physical sciences and mathematics incorrectly. The extracts are intentionally rather long to avoid accusations of taking sentences out of context.
    Published in French as Impostures Intellectuelles and in the United Kingdom as Intellectual Impostures.
  27. For Lust of Knowing
    The Orientalists and their enemies

    Resource Type: Book
    First Published: 2006
    A rebuttal of Edward Said which examines who the Orientalists were, how historically they advanced their disciplines, and what their achievements have been. Irwin calls Said's book "a work of malignant charlatanry."
  28. Foucault and Neoliberalism
    Resource Type: Book
    First Published: 2015
    Michel Foucault has a reputation, especially in the academic world, as a radical. This collection of essays explores another, less acknowledged, side of Foucault's thinking: his embrace of some key elements of neoliberalism.
  29. Greece: postmodernism in power
    Resource Type: Article
    First Published: 2015
    Yanis Varoufakis, the Finance Minister in Greece’s Syriza government, shows where postmodernist attacks on Marx lead politically. This self-declared "erratic Marxist" states forthrightly that the task of today's Left is to save capitalism from itself, which requires "forging alliances with reactionary forces."
  30. Higher Superstition: The Academic Left and its Quarrels with Science
    Resource Type: Book
    First Published: 1994
    Describes attacks on science, and on concepts of truth and rationality, in areas of the humanities.
  31. Humanism Betrayed
    Ideology, and Culture in the Contemporary University

    Resource Type: Book
    First Published: 2001
    This book offers a defence of liberal humanism as a philosophy of higher education, particularly in the humanities, against the illiberal trends, political and intellectual, that are currently dominating the university.
  32. The Illusions of Postmodernism 
    Resource Type: Book
    First Published: 1996
    Eagleton explores the origins and emergence of postmodernism, revealing its ambivalences and contradictions. His primary concern is less with the more intricate formulations of postmodern philosophy than with the culture or milieu of postmodernism as a whole. Above all, he speaks to a particular kind of student, or consumer, of popular "brands" of postmodern thought.
  33. In the Tracks of Historical Materialism
    Resource Type: Book
    First Published: 1984
  34. Intellectual Charlatans & Academic Witch-Hunters
    Resource Type: Article
    First Published: 2012
    Butler’s work has always divided critics. While some view her as a courageous and innovative thinker, others view her as an intellectual charlatan.
  35. Interview with Ellen Meiksins Wood 
    Democracy & Capitalism: Friends or Foes?

    Resource Type: Article
    First Published: 1996
    Postmodernist pluralism, just like the old variety, obscures the realities of power in capitalist societies. It also disarms and disintegrates the opposition to capitalism. Postmodernism brings us back to the old and uncritical forms of capitalist ideology, which leave the system fundamentally unchallenged. Marxism -- historical materialism -- is the best foundation for an understanding of the society in which we live and therefore also the best guide in our search for a better one.
  36. Logics of Disintegration
    Post-Structuralist Thought and the Claims of Critical Theory

    Resource Type: Book
    First Published: 1987
    Essays summarizing and critiquing post-structuralism. According to Dews, for all its posture of radicality, post-structuralist thought is itself bound to certain vulnerable assumptions. Dews argues that the fatal philosophical fault of post-structuralism is its failure to preserve the proper dialectical distinction between the subject and the object.
  37. Multiculturalism or World Culture? 
    On a "Left"-Wing Response to Contemporary Social Breakdown

    Resource Type: Article
    First Published: 1991   Published: 2000
    Post-modernists are profoundly bored by any questions of economics and technology which cannot be connected to cultural differences. The implicit agenda of the multiculturalists is to present the values associated with intensive capitalist accumulation as "white male", so "non-white" peoples such as Japanese or Koreans who currently embody those values with a greater fervour than most "whites" are ignored.
  38. The Nazis and Deconstruction: Jean-Pierre Faye's Demolition of Derrida 
    Resource Type: Article
    First Published: 1993
    A review of Jean-Pierre Faye's book 'La raison narrative', which traces the Nazi origins of deconstructionist and post-modernist concepts and terminology. Faye shows, for example, that the concept of 'deconstruction' was introduced in a Nazi journal edited by M.H. Goering, and he shows how theorists who based themselves on Heidegger's writings, such as Derrida, Lyotard, and Lacoue-Labarthe, whitewashed Heidegger's Nazism, treating it as a mere 'detail'.
  39. News & Letters: Draft for Marxist-Humanist Perspectives, 2006 - 2007
    Resource Type: Article
    First Published: 2006
    We aim to help fill the void on the question of "what happens after" by creatively rethinking and restating his concept of "revolution in permanence" for today.
  40. Nothing Mat(t)ers: A Feminist Critique of Postmodernism 
    Resource Type: Book
    First Published: 1992
    An explanation of the foundation of recent post-modern theory which also criticises the misogynist and patriarchal work of Jacques Lacan, Michel Foucault, Jacques Derrida, Jean Baudrillard and Jean-Francois Lyotard.
  41. Ontological "Difference" and the Neo-Liberal War on the Social 
    Deconstruction and Deindustrialization

    Resource Type: Article
    First Published: 2001
    We have today legions of people with a smattering of knowledge turning out reams of books filled with buzz words that could be (and have been) produced by a computer program, and could be (and are) picked up in peer-group shop talk in a few months at the nearest humanities program or academic conference. Everyone these people don't like is trapped in a "gaze"; everyone "constitutes" their "identity" by "discourse"; to the fuddy-duddy "master narratives" that talk about such indelicate subjects as world accumulation these people counterpose "pastiche" and "bricolage", the very idea of being in any way systematic smacking of "totalitarianism"; it is blithely assumed that everyone except heterosexual white males now and for all time have been "subversives" (one wonders why we are still living under capitalism); a crippling relativism makes it somehow "imperial" to criticize public beheadings in Saudi Arabia or cliterodectomy practiced on five-year old girls in the Sudan.
  42. The Origins of Post-Modernity
    Resource Type: Book
    Perry Anderson's book outlines the cultural changes that have accompanied the victory of global capitalism.
  43. Other Voices: The Connexions Newsletter - June 18, 2016
    Resource Type: Serial Publication (Periodical)
    First Published: 2016
    This issue of Other Voices features a wide range of issues. The topic of the week is homophobia, the hate that led to 49 deaths in Orlando last week, but which is present in greater or lesser form in every part of the world.
    We are always concerned, not only with what is wrong with the world, but what to do about it.
    This issue carries an excerpt from Umair Mohammed's book 'Confronting Injustice: Social Activism in the Age of Individualism' in which he warns against the pitfalls of individualist and consumer-oriented approaches and argues in favour of collective action to build an effective movement.
    Derrick Jensen considers some of the arguments in favour of pacifism and finds them wanting. He agrees that creative approaches to social change can oftentimes make violence unnecessary, but that sometimes violence is a necessary response to violence.
    Another article looks at the decline of liberation theology, targeted as a threat by both the Vatican and secular power structures.
    Kenan Malik considers the issue of "cultural appropriation" and asks why so many on theso-called left are more interested in criticizing Justin Bieber's hairstyle than in fighting capitalism.
  44. Post-Modernism Meets the IMF: The Case of Poland
    Resource Type: Article
    First Published: 1990
    The historical experience of Stalinism has delayed by decades, perhaps generations, the maturation of the historical project, first elaborated by Marx, of a positive supercession of the formal juridical universality of "civil", or bourgeois society, and the commodity status of labor power in that society upon which it rests. Nothing illustrates the weight of the albatross of Stalinism better than Polish society in the past decade.
  45. Postcolonial Thought's Blind Alley 
    Resource Type: Article
    First Published: 2014
    Throughout the 20th century, the anchor for anti-colonial movements was, at least for the left, a belief that oppression was wrong wherever it was practised, because it was an affront to basic human needs for dignity, liberty, wellbeing. But now, in the name of anti-Eurocentrism, postcolonial theory has resurrected the cultural essentialism that progressives rightly viewed as the ideological justification for imperial domination. What better excuse to deny peoples their rights than to impugn the idea of rights, and universal interests, as culturally biased? No revival of an international and democratic left is possible unless we clear away these ideas, affirming the universalism of our common humanity, and of the threat to it from a universalising capitalism.
  46. Postmodern Disrobed
    Review of Intellectual Impostures

    Resource Type: Article
    First Published: 1998
    An admirable job of exposing the daffy absurdity of postmodernism intellectuals.
  47. The Postmodern Left and the success of neoliberalism 
    Resource Type: Article
    First Published: 2016
    The international Left promotes its own image rather than engaging in the bitter reality of resistance against neoliberalism. It does not need to believe in postmodernism because it is postmodernism.
  48. The postmodern left and the success of neoliberalism
    Resource Type: Article
    First Published: 2016
    The rise of neoliberalism across the globe for decades, and its continued resilience since the 2007-2008 financial crisis in particular, forces us to ask why there has not been a more successful resistance against it.
  49. Postmodernism and the Left
    Resource Type: Article
    First Published: 1997
    Barabara Epstein provides an overview of the approach and subculture of postmodernism and how they relate to, or conflict with, leftwing ideas.
  50. Postmodernism Generator 
    Resource Type: Website
    First Published: 2000
    A computer program written by Andrew. C. Bulhak using the Dada Engine, a system for generating random text. Each time you click on the page, it generates a brand-new postmodernist essay, completely meaningless, but superficially plausible, just like 'real' postmodernist essays.
  51. Postmodernism or, The Cultural Logic of Late Capitalism (excerpt from Chapter 1)
    Resource Type: Article
    First Published: 1991
    This whole global, yet American, postmodern culture is the internal and superstructural expression of a whole new wave of American military and economic domination throughout the world: in this sense, as throughout class history, the underside of culture is blood, torture, death, and terror.
  52. Postmodernism: Paralysed by postmodernism
    Resource Type: Article
    First Published: 2008
    A great deal of "theory" in the humanities and social sciences -- and not just postmodern theory -- involves the creating of a kind of conceptual landscape filled with curious kinds of abstract objects -- "language", "power", "justice", "state", "culture", "government", "the polity", "the economy" and a host of others, which are viewed "theoretically" from somewhere way "outside" or "above" them. But it is just this way of looking at things -- from "on high" -- that makes it so difficult to see how people in the landscape are able to create and re-create the world in which they live, and are not simply trapped or formed by it. In fashionable postmodernist treatments of identity or subjectivity, language, as the ultimately hollow and imprisoning object, is put together with the notion that anybody who uses words must be committed to the standard definition of those words, to produce the conclusion that "language" determines the meaning of "identity" words such as man, woman, gay, straight, black, white, natural, normal -- and thus "constructs" (as it is said) human identity or subjectivity itself.
  53. Postmodernism, the Academic Left, and the Crisis of Capitalism
    Resource Type: Article
    First Published: 2013
    Over the past fifty years, postmodern theory — an umbrella term generally used to refer to such diverse theoretical movements and paradigms as post-structuralism, Lacanian psychoanalysis, deconstruction, and others — has generally dominated most fields in the humanities and some in the social sciences. But the economic meltdown in 2008 and the subsequent chronic crisis in capitalism have dealt a fatal theoretical blow to the varied and nearly ineffable assemblage of perspectives that are often grouped under the rubric of “postmodernism.” postmodernism was indeed tragedy. It was tragedy for the massive amounts of “cultural capital” that it wasted; it was tragedy for the defrauding of intellectual integrity that it represented; it was tragedy for the abandonment of reality that it recommended. Further, like the financial fiasco, it was criminal.
  54. The Professor of Parody
    Resource Type: Article
    First Published: 2000
    It is difficult to come to grips with Judith Butler’s ideas because it is difficult to figure out what they are.
  55. Rationality/Science 
    Resource Type: Article
    First Published: 1995
    Chomsky writes: "It strikes me as remarkable that the left today should seek to deprive oppressed people not only of the joys of understanding and insight, but also of tools of emancipation, informing us that the "project of the Enlightenment" is dead, that we must abandon the "illusions" of science and rationality--a message that will gladden the hearts of the powerful, delighted to monopolize these instruments for their own use."
  56. Reading Orientalism
    Said and the unsaid

    Resource Type: Book
    First Published: 2008
    An extensive discussion of Edward Said's influential 1978 polemic 'Orientalism'. Varisco mounts a sustained critique on Said's flawed methodology, his skewed and selective handling of literary evidence, his inadequate historical knowledge, and his distorted and tendentious conclusions.
  57. Revenge of the Pomo
    Resource Type: Article
    First Published: 2013
    The repression (either physically or ideologically via social amnesia) of utopians by the Palmer Raids, McCarthyism, and now (certain varieties of) Post-Modernism has led us to a situation in which some search for authenticity in the wrong places. The gap between virtuous and misplaced authenticity is a symptom of repression, the loss of some deeper truths about solutions be they cooperatives, political mobilization, or honest journalism.
  58. Said, Edward, Critical Notes on
    Resource Type: Article
    First Published: 2005
    Edward Said was admired by the anti-imperialist left for his courageous defence of Palestinian rights. However, Irfan Habib argues that unfortunately Said's scholarly work, notably his major work 'Orientalism,' was confused and sloppy to be point of being unethical.
  59. Edward Said's shadowy legacy 
    Tricky with argument, weak in languages, careless of facts: but, thirty years on, Said still dominates debate

    Resource Type: Article
    First Published: 2008
    So many academics want the arguments presented in Edward Said's Orientalism (1978) to be true. It discourages any kind of critical approach to Islam in Middle Eastern studies.

  63. Strange Fruit 
    Why Both Sides Are Wrong in the Race Debate

    Resource Type: Book
    First Published: 2008
    Malik makes the case that most anti-racists accept the belief, also held by racialists and outright racists, that differences between groups are of great importance. While racialists attribute the differences to biology, anti-racists attribute them to deep-rooted cultural traditions which are typically seen as inherent in the group. Malik argues that these positions are actually quite similar, and makes the case that racism and racial inequality are best combatted by focusing not on our differences but on what unites us. Malik also strongly criticizes the cultural relativism of many anti-racists, and their increasing tendency to reject science as some kind of western imperialist conspiracy to oppress the rest of the world.
  64. Telling the Truth
    Socialist Register 2006

    Resource Type: Book
    First Published: 2005
    A collection of essays that examines the difficulties of illuminating the degenerative and secretive nature of public life.
  65. Transgressing the Boundaries: Toward a Transformative Hermeneutics of Quantum Gravity
    Resource Type: Article
    First Published: 1996
    Alan Sokal submitted this parody of postmodernism, poststructuralist theory, deconstruction, and political moralism to the journal Social Text. The editors failed to spot the hoax and published it as a serious article. The hoax caused a fierce debate between the postmodernists and those who consider postmodernism reactionary nonsense.
  66. The Trouble with Theory
    The Educational Costs of Postmodernism

    Resource Type: Book
    First Published: 2008
    Postmodern theory has engaged the hearts and heads of the brightest students because of its apparent political and social radicalism. Yet Kitching writes: "At the heart of postmodernism is very poor, deeply confused, and misbegotten philosophy. As a result even the very best students who fall under its sway produce radically incoherent ideas about language, meaning, truth, and reality."
  67. Vanguard of Retrogression 
    "Postmodern" Fictions as Ideology in the Era of Fictitious Capital

    Resource Type: Book
    First Published: 2001
    When one probes the terms of the debate, what is truly amazing is that the ostensibly anti-Eurocentric multiculturalists are, without knowing it, purveying a remarkably Eurocentric version of what the Western tradition really is. The ultimate theoretical sources of today's multiculturalism are two very white and very dead European males, Friedrich Nietzsche and Martin Heidegger.
  68. Where Do Postmodernists Come From?
    Resource Type: Article
    First Published: 1995
    Eagleton argues that left intellectuals have adopted postmodernism out of a sense of having been badly defeated, a belief that the left as a political tendency has little future. Culturalism, he argues, involves an extreme subjectivism combined with a deep pessimism, a sense that it isn't worth the effort to learn about the world, to analyze social systems, for instance, because they can't be changed anyway.
  69. Why Does It Matter If Heidegger Was Anti-Semitic?
    Resource Type: Article
    First Published: 2014
    The publication of the philosopher Martin Heidegger’s “Schwarzen Hefte” (“Black Notebooks”), written between 1931 and the early nineteen-seventies, is likely to cause an uproar.
  70. Why the French Hate Chomsky
    Resource Type: Article
    First Published: 2010
    Chomsky's criticism is laden with facts, a substance that seems to elicit ennui among contemporary French thinkers. No doubt the importance of the essay in the French educational system has bred a world of 'philosophers' whose skill at manipulating fact-free ideas was the guarantee of a distinguished career. If the social object is to entertain, then the French school reaches its goal -- mystification is often far more entertaining than straightforward descriptions of reality. On the other hand, if the object is to help readers reach their own understanding of reality, especially political reality, then their first need is to be provided with the basic relevant facts, which most people do not have time to ascertain through their own research. Thus Chomsky is useful to citizens by providing them with the raw material to develop their own ideas in a way that the purveyors of ready-made but flimsily supported ideas are not.
