The Essential Marcuse provides an overview of Herbert Marcuses political and philosophical writing over four decades, with excerpts from his major books as well as essays from various academic journals. The most influential radical philosopher of the 1960s, Marcuses writings are noteworthy for their uncompromising opposition to both capitalism and communism. His words are as relevant to todays society as they were at the time they were written. Andrew Feenberg is a Canada Research Chair in Philosophy of Technology at Simon Fraser University in Vancouver. William Leiss, O.C., Ph.D., FRSC, has been a professor at seven Canadian universities. Both Feenberg and Leiss worked under Herbert Marcuse as graduate students at the University of California, San Diego.
