Tributes to Moishe Postone

On March 19, 2018 we lost Moishe Postone, a brilliant social theorist and one of recent history’s leading interpreters of Marx. Here are tributes to him by five authors inspired by his writing and teaching. The first four texts appeared in Czech translation in A2 in 2018. The fifth appeared in the 2018 volume of Contradictions and, before that, in Slovak in Kapitál.
