Kenneth j. urban alienation As defined by Marx in the Economic and Philosophical Manuscripts (1844), alienation is a specific historical condition in which man experiences a separation from nature, other human beings, and especially the products of his labor. Since man creates himself through labor, all of these forms of alienation imply an alienation of man from himself. For Hegel, alienation was a philosophical concept expressing one aspect of the process of self-objectification: in the dialectical process, Spirit objectified itself in nature (a stage in which it was alienated from itself ) and then returned to itself.

However, it possessed a theoretical rationale. For whilst Althusser’s innovations were extremely powerful as critiques, problematizing basic assumptions of the Marxist tradition, they were vulnerable as solutions, inviting countercritiques which soon ensued (see Benton, 1984). Thus, for example, the theory of theoretical practice was identified as an unstable compromise between rationalism and conventionalism, from which the indicated escape for many was perspectivism. Anti-humanism met with both philosophical and political objections to its supposed structural determinism (especially in Thompson, 1978), which rendered social change inconceivable and inexplicable.
