List of Texts by Raya Dunayevskaya in News & Letters

News & Letters has compiled a list of all of the texts by Raya Dunayevskaya that have been reproduced in the print and online versions of the newspaper since 1997.

Needless to say, there is much of great interest here. A cursory set of recommendations includes:

A Restatement of Some Fundamentals of Marxism against ‘pseudo-Marxism’

• An excerpt from an important polemic directed against Joe Carter, one of the main theorists of the Workers Party’s bureaucratic collectivist analysis of the U.S.S.R. This piece is a response by Dunayevskaya (Freddie Forest) to an attack by Carter on a 1942 text (“Production for Production’s Sake”) by C.L.R. James (J.R. Johnson).

The Revolt of the Workers and the Plan of the Intellectuals, Parts I and II

• Excerpts from a major text directed against two representatives of orthodox U.S. Trotskyism (George Novak and John Wright). This dates from the period when the State-Capitalist Tendency operated as a minority in the Socialist Workers Party (1947-August 1951).

Rough Notes on Hegel’s Science of Logic

Part I (Preface and Introduction)

Part II (Doctrine of Being)

Part III (Doctrine of Essence)

Part IV (Doctrine of Notion)

• A four-part serialization of Dunayevskaya’s important study of the entirety of Hegel’s (larger) Logic undertaken in 1960 and 1961. The document appears in The Power of Negativity: Selected Writings on the Dialectic in Hegel and Marx.
