From Althusser's so much prolific interval, this booklet is destined to develop into a classic.
In the overdue Nineteen Seventies and Nineteen Eighties, Louis Althusser continued a interval of excessive psychological instability in which he murdered his spouse and was once devoted to a psychiatric clinic. Spanning this deeply troubling interval, this fourth and ultimate quantity of political and philosophical writings finds Althusser wrestling in an artistic and unorthodox style with an entire sequence of theoretical difficulties to supply a few of his very most interesting paintings. In his profound exploration of questions of determinism and contingency, Althusser constructed a "philosophy of the encounter," which he hyperlinks to a hidden and subterranean culture within the historical past of Western suggestion which stretches from Epicurus via Spinoza and Machiavelli to Marx, Derrida and Heidegger.

It was only in the middle region of economic activity, in the sphere of small urban industry and small and middle commerce, that the corporate regime seriously functioned, and with more elasticity than the letter of the regulations would lead one to believe. And even in this middle region, peaceful and well-regulated, capitalism’s entrepreneurial spirit penetrated. […] And so, in the final quarter of the eighteenth century, the economic regime was extremely complex.
