Abstract

The paper critically examines the relevance of one contemporary version of 'Activity Theory' to our understanding and engagement with the current economic and political crises sweeping the world. We re-affirm the value and significance of Marx's work for our attempts to grasp the driving forces behind these crises and to articulate a way forward.
