Moral Marxism and its Radical Critics argues that Marx's perception of human essence is the basis for an ethic of liberation which permeates his social thought. It testifies to his major debt to Greek philosophy and tradition. Wilde examines how his humanistic ethic used to be built by means of Marcuse and Fromm, and the way it's been rejected via Habermas and Gorz.
