Louis Althusser’s interpretation of Niccolò Machiavelli hasn't ever rather been studied in any aspect as an research of political motion and intervention. a similar can be real for Althusser’s idea of aleatory materialism. as an alternative, those have conventionally been studied from the perspective of a philosophical point of view within which politics is excluded. the target of the current booklet therefore runs opposed to a number of the winning perspectives on Althusser. the following the emphasis is put on Althusser's development of a conception of materialist politics. the most argument recommend is that, for Althusser, it used to be necessary to think of how the conjunctural realizing of background and truth may perhaps supply a theoretical start line for a subversive political approach.
