The Samprajña Institute is honored to announce that Dr. Yvette Claire Rosser has assumed the role of chief editor for the Institute’s Dialectical Spiritualism book project, which will present a critique of Marxism from the point of view of the Vedic tradition. The book's critiques will cover four areas: Pre-Marxist philosophy, Classical Marxism, 20th century Marxism, and Maoism. The book will also offer a fifth section that that presents practical alternatives to Marxism.
Published in the December 2000 issue of Policy Review, the article "Why There is a Culture War?", by John Fonte, describes the American culture war as a clash between the ideas of Alexis de Tocqueville and Antonio Gramsci. After 10 years, Fonte's analysis is still a useful guide for understanding the big ideas that motivate action throughout all sections of American society.
