The Collected Works of Louis Althusser

Louis Althusser, (born 16th October, 1918, Birmandreis, Algeria—died 22nd October, 1990, near Paris, France), was one of the most original and controversial of French intellectuals: with Antonio Gramsci he was the most influential of western thinkers on Marxism. His career as a philosopher had been spent entirely at the prestigious institution of the Ecole normale superieure and his fame was associated with the seminars that he held in that part of the University of Paris.
