Since everyone is going on about Leszek Kolakowski (starting with Tony Judt, and thence Jonathan Goodwin, 3QD, DeLong) or, separately, Althusser (Bérubé, McLemee), I bring you: Kolakowski demolishing Althusser. Read it and weep, or laugh, as hailed. And do read Main Currents of Marxism, now that it's out in one volume ("so handy for pocket or purse", in the words of a certain rootless cosmopolite).
This completes your moment of Marxist harmonic convergence.
