This introductory chapter argues that what has come to be called the Marxian tradition takes shape around a long series of disavowals of Karl Marx's critical-political project. It takes Marx and his closest readers to have had their critical-political project in all its radicality in mind: as an account of wild mediation with every bit of edge ground into it. Because it does not sit well with mechanisms of capture, of value-production, of universal translation, of disciplinarization; with mechanisms that link, however dialectically, the “world” with the “local;” this project has remained a peripheral, contested, mostly unrecognized aspect of the Marxian tradition.
