Marx: Living and Dead

Brian Leiter has an interesting essay on What is Living and What is Dead in Marx?

Leiter focues on the descriptive rather than normative portions of his work. And while I disagree pretty strongly with some of the assertions, he makes a good point about the fact that there is some baby with this bath water. Kneejerk rejection of anything Marxian just because of the awful things that have been done under its banner is as stupid as PoMo rejection of political liberalism for similar reasons.
