Editorial Reviews

Metapsychology - Laxminarayan Lenka

"This book is a brilliant contribution of Marxism besides being a novel critique of Taylor's notion of the self. It can be of immense help to philosophers of moral philosophy and socio-political thinkers who work on modern identity and self-understanding in general and also to those researchers investigating the ideas of Marx or Taylor in particular."

Political Studies Review - John Cullen

"This work differs from other available examinations of Taylor's thought in its avowedly critical intent and radical dialectical perspective... it excellently explains his work to newcomers, right up to his most recently publications, which is a solid testament to the clarity of Fraser's writing and the rigour of his analysis."

Sociology - Kristina Simonian

"Fraser's book is not only an attempt to show the link between [Charles] Taylor’s ideas and Marxist tradition, but also the analysis of the notion of modern self."
