In the late 1970s and 1980s, Louis Althusser endured a period of intense mental instability during which he murdered his wife and was committed to a psychiatric hospital. Spanning this period, this fourth volume of political and philosophical writings reveals his wrestling with a series of theoretical problems to produce some of his finest work.


Louis Althusser taught political philosophy for many years at the Ecole Normale Superieure in Paris, and was a leading intellectual in the French Communist Party. Many major figures studied with him, including Derrida and Foucault, and his work marked a new beginning for post-war political philosophy. His books include Reading Capital (with Etienne Balibar), For Marx, Machiavelli and Us and The Humanist Controversy and Other Writings.


"Althusser traversed so many lives--so many personal, historical, philosophical and political adventures; marked, inflected, influenced so many discourses, actions and existences by the radiant and provocative force of his thought--that the most diverse and contradictory accounts could never exhaust their source."--Jacques Derrida
