A completely reworked edition of his work, Michael Lebowitz's Beyond Capital explores one of the great debates among Marx scholars, that of the implications of Marx's uncompleted works. Lebowitz focuses on the side of the workers, which, he argues, was not developed in Marx's Das Kapital and which was to be the subject of Marx's intended book on wage-labour. Beyond Capital argues that Marx's political economy of the working class and the way in which human beings produce themselves through their struggles are central for going beyond capital.
