Contradictions: New Volume on Thinking Left Dissent
January 26th, 2022
Contradictions: A Journal for Critical Thought, vol. 5 (2021) on Thinking Left Dissent
edited by Kristina Andělová, Jan Mervart, and Petr Kužel
The latest volume of Contradictions responds to academic calls to reevaluate or rethink the history of dissent. Contributors to this volume explore how socialist political concepts took shape within the dissident movement in Central and Eastern Europe before 1989, and they show that the notion of Marxist dissent is not a contradiction in terms. They explore multiple critiques, programs, and visions present in left dissident political thought and philosophy.
