So, Accelerationism, what's all that about?

deontologistics:

So, accelerationism, what’s all that about? Well, lots of people are talking about it, and lots of them are very critical of it. As someone who has played a small role in the development of what is increasingly being called ‘left-accelerationist’ thought (I organised the second accelerationist…

"I was left behind with the immensity of existing things. A sponge, suffering because it cannot saturate itself; a river, suffering because reflections of clouds and trees are not clouds and trees."

Essentials of Marxist Theory Reader   

levantineviper:

Theory is essentially the intellectual expression of the revolutionary process itself. In it every stage of the process becomes fixed so that it may be generalised, communicated, utilised and developed. Because the theory does nothing but arrest and make conscious each necessary step, it becomes at the same time the necessary premise of the following one.

— György Lukács

I’ve put together a list of books, articles, essays, anthologies, and collected works that are essential reading for those who wish to possess a basic understanding of Marxist theory. I’ve included links (PDFs or HTML on MIA) to the full text of every single work I’ve included in this list. The list begins with Marx and ends with contemporary Marxist academics and intellectuals, while covering everything in between. The list is organized chronologically, not in order of what should be read first (although in a sense, it is almost organized in terms of who should be read first). This still is, and will always be, a work in progress.

I tried to keep this selection as pure as I possibly could (a friend of mine described this list as “Salafi Marxist”) despite the fact that I had to sacrifice some of its purity for the sake of inclusion and variety. This list does not represent me or my views in its entirety; I’ve included a few Marxist theorists whose assertions I reject and theorists whose fan clubs I despise (I’m looking at you, Trots).

Marx:

Marx and Engels:

The Marx-Engels Collected Works

The MECW consists of 32,000 pages of works written by Marx and Engels. It contains most (if not all) of what I’ve listed above (and a whole lot more) in one PDF document.

Engels:

Lenin:

Lenin’s Collected Works

45 volumes that include almost every word Lenin has ever written, with two exceptions (listed at the bottom of the page) with links. 

Rosa Luxemburg:

Trotsky:

Antonio Gramsci:

The following are all very short pieces by Gramsci:

Georg Lukács:

Mao:

The Frankfurt School:

Other:

A lot more can be found on the Marxists Internet Archive and the E-Book Collective websites.

"Of all things, hard work has become a virtue instead of the curse it was always advertised to be by our remote ancestors … Our children should be prepared to bring their children up so they won’t have to work as a neurotic necessity. The necessity to work is a neurotic symptom. It is a crutch. It is an attempt to make oneself feel valuable even though there is no particular need for one’s working."
- Marcuse quoting C. B. Chisholm, Eros and Civilization (via bourgeoisentimentality)
