This volume by George Novack (1905-1992), a leader of the Socialist Workers Party (US), explains the relationship between humanism and Marxist historical materialism over the course of eight chapters that progress from a labor theory of mankind's origins to the necessity of revolutionary socialism. The essays consider the problem of the origins of humanity; the emergence of society, speech, and thought; the role of creative practice in human life; the reality of social progress; the question of freedom; competing ideological claims to humanism; the necessary conditions for a genuine socialist humanism; and the revolutionary socialist view of the meaning of human existence. This is a paperbound edition of a work first published in 1973.
