Marx and FreedomBook - 1997
Terry Eagleton explains that freedom, for Marx, entailed release from commerciallabour, "a kind of creative superabundance over what is materially essential". Eagleton outlines the relationship between production, labour and ownership which lie at the core of Marx's thinking. Marx's utopia was a place in which labour is increasingly automated, emancipating the wealth of sensuous individualdevelopment so that "savouring a peach [is an aspect] of our self-actualisation as much as building dams".
