Despite this standard conception, however, a small number of scholars have long suggested that there are deeper philosophical commonalities between Marx and Wittgenstein. They have argued that, once grasped, these commonalities can radically change and enrich understanding both of Marxism and of Wittgensteinian philosophy. This book develops and extends this unorthodox view, emphasizing the mutual enrichment that comes from bringing Marxs and Wittgensteins ideas into dialogue with one another.

The contributors to this book are scholars drawn from sociology, politics, economics and philosophy. They focus on areas including: the role of the Marxist economist Sraffa on Wittgensteins philosophical development- the conventional image of Wittgensteins significance for Marxist social science, as perpetrated by Winch and Gellner- the philosophical anthropology of Marx and Wittgenstein- and the ethical and political status of Marxist knowledge-claims in the light of Wittgensteins philosophy.
