What You Need to Know About : Marxist Theory

The point of departure for Marxist theory is the philosophical and political legacies of Karl Marx and Frederick Engels. Marxist theory provides a conceptual toolbox for understanding and explaining how humans produce and consume social wealth. As a critical approach to communication, Marxist theory participates in a political struggle against capitalism for a future beyond capitalism. As such, it investigates the myriad ways capitalism mobilizes communication through political, cultural, and economic institutions for the purpose of social control. Therefore, Marxist theory attempts to provide an alternative way of knowing, acting, and living in the world beyond the command of capitalism. Before exploring the specifics of how Marxist theory and communication have been informed by each other, it is valuable to outline the Marxist case against capitalism.
