|Summary, etc.:|| Peter Singer identifies the central vision that unifies Marx's thought, enabling us to grasp Marx's views as a whole. Singer sees him as a philosopher primarily concerned with human freedom, rather than as an economist or a social scientist. He explains alienation, historical materialism, the economic theory of "Capital," and Marx's ideas of communism in plain English, and concludes with an assessment of Marx's legacy.
