Der entropische Marx
Eine Bitte an den Marxismus, die Entropie-Kirche im thermodynamischen Dorf zu lassen
Schlagworte:Marx, Marxismus, Sozialismus, Podolinsky, Thermodynamik
The essay critically engages with the debate on the numerous approaches that seek to connect Marxian theory with thermodynamics/entropy. Starting from the analyses of Podolinsky’s energetics published in the 19th century I will go into its rediscovery in the ecological discourse of the 20th century – basically by Martinez- Alier - and the reaction of Burkett/Foster. The essay will conclude with a critique of Elmar Altvater’s attempts to connect Marxian value theory and entropy.
