Following on his earlier work on Adam Smith and David Ricardo, Gopal Balakrishnan’s current work on Marx seeks to demonstrate the logical unity of Marx’s mature economic thought, while recognizing its specifically 19th century assumptions, as well as its incompleteness as an account of the history of capitalism.

Gopal Balakrishnan is associate professor in the History of Consciousness Department at the University of California, Santa Cruz, working on political thought, intellectual history, and critical theory.
