Few would deny that Karl Marx was among the most influential philosophers of the 20th century. Yet, as Christoph Henning shows in this important new work, he was also among the most misinterpreted. Focusing on German philosophy from Heidegger to Habermas, and the influence of Rawls and Neo-pragmatism, Henning sketches a historical trajectory of the ways that misreadings in the fields of economics and sociology proliferated into further misreadings across a variety of fields, leading to an accumulation of questionable preconceptions. This historical analysis makes clearly evident where and how academic anti-Marxism first went wrong in their readings of Marx.
