Observations on Art and Culture, Science and Philosophy
This anthology of reflections and observations features a firsthand view into the mind of the freewheeling leader of the Revolutionary Communist Party, USA, in the midst of developing his thought and re-envisioning the communist project. Featuring excerpts from a range of formal talks and informal discussions, this collection examines his cutting-edge vision and theory on topics at the center of current philosophical debate—how humans acquire truth, whether truth exists, the role of art and imagination in being human, and a Marxist view of the Enlightenment. Up against what he perceives to be Dark Ages–thought from the seats of power and "Bush-ism" in the Communist Movement, he brings forth an epistemology of intoxication with truth, a scientific world view, and an inviting vision of a Communist society.

Bob Avakian is best described as a vainglorious loudmouth who poses as a Marxist thinker. This skinny little book is a minor waste of time, evidently transcribed from innumerable "talks" Avakian gives to followers. Read full review
