Since Plato, philosophers have dreamed of establishing a rational state ruled through the power of language. In this radical and disturbing account of Soviet philosophy, Boris Groys argues that communism shares that dream and is best understood as an attempt to replace financial with linguistic bonds as the cement uniting society. The transformative power of language, the medium of equality, is the key to any new communist revolution.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"One of the most astute commentators on the art scene today."--New Left Review

"Groys combines revelatory analysis with philosophical questions that go to the heart of cultural production today."--Iwona Blazwick

"A timely intervention in present debates about the legacy of communism [and] a provocative addition to Groys' brilliantly paradoxical body of work."--Art Review

"Groys has claimed a defining role in the reception of the Russian avant-garde ... The Communist Postscript presents Groys's attempt to advocate the communist idea against its own historic assumptions."--Radical Philosophy
