A three volume selection of Castoriadis' political writings from a combined period of 1946-1979. These volumes cover a broad range of topics: from the nature of the USSR's "bureaucratic capitalism", to the history of the old workers' movements, to self-organised working class struggle in the post-world war two era.
Cornelius Castoriadis' far-reaching analysis of the unique character of the social-historical world and its relations to the individual, to language, and to nature. He argues that most traditional conceptions of society and history overlook the essential feature of the social-historical world, namely that this world is not articulated once and for all but is in each case the creation of the society concerned.
