Louis Althusser and the Traditions of French Marxism is a 2005 book about Louis Althusser by William S. Lewis.

Summary

Lewis examines Althusser's "Structural Marxism", which was popular in the 1960s and 1970s. His approach places Althusser's writings within the context of the French Communist Party and the tradition of French intellectual Marxism. The role and place of political theory is a major concern of Lewis' interpretation of Althusser. Lewis argues that the Stalinist and humanist interpretations of Karl Marx were theoretically untenable and had harmful practical consequences for the French Communist Party.
