This essay features as part of a collection of essays that explore the implications of Alasdair MacIntyre’s critique of liberalism, capitalism, and the modern state, his early Marxism, and the complex influences of Marxist ideas on his thought. A central idea is that MacIntyre’s political and social theory is a form of revolutionary—not reactionary—Aristotelianism. The contributors aim, in varying degrees, both to engage with the theoretical issues of MacIntyre’s critique and to extend and deepen his insights.
