Raya Dunayevskaya takes up the development of the Marxist-Humanist concept of Archives.
[S]eeing Marx's works as a totality, especially the "new moments" in the works of his last decade, set a new task for future generations to work these out for their age. For Marxist-Humanists, that also illuminated the Marxist-Humanist Archives, because it set, in a totally new context, what is meant by catching the link of continuity with Marx's Marxism, as well as revealing that the discontinuity of an age, a century later, is no barrier to catching the continuity. Marxist-Humanism's Archives demonstrate that. It continues to motivate all our writings and activities.
