Science, Marxism and the Big Bang – A Critical Review of Reason in Revolt


A contribution to a discussion of Marxism and modern science, cosmology and dialectics, the Big Bang and Marxist philosophy.

SKU: MASO0002 Category: Tag:


The ancient Greek philosopher Anaximander once wrote that the heavens and the worlds within them began in a “sphere of fire”, arising from some unbounded chaos. Some 2,400 years later, Friedrich Engels echoed Anaximander’s dialectic: “Everything that comes into being must pass away.”

Science, Marxism and the Big Bang discusses some of the great philosophies and scientific discoveries of cosmology – including those of Aristotle, Galileo, Newton, Kant, Hegel, Engels and Einstein. This discussion dispels the misconceptions of Reason in Revolt – the book by Ted Grant and Alan Woods that claims to expound the fundamentals of Marxism – in particular that the Big Bang theory is just another “creation myth”.

Engels praised Immanuel Kant’s theory of the “origin of all existing celestial bodies”. Peter Mason argues that Engels’ outlook is compatible with modern theories of our universe.
