II What Is Left of Marxism After Analysis? Some would say that there is little more than mere remains of Marxism after analysis. Some of the practitioners of analytical Marxism encourage this impression. , 1986, 2). Elsewhere he says `that the lines drawn between contemporary analytical Marxism and contemporary left-liberal political philosophy are fuzzy. , 1986, 200). Page 8 Elster's judgment is more severe and extreme. Among the things that he thinks Marx was wrong about and that should be rejected are `scientific socialism, the labor theory of value, the theory of the falling rate of profit, the unity of theory and practice in revolutionary struggle, and the utopian vision of a transparent communist society unconstrained by scarcity' (Elster, 1986, 4; see also 188-94).

It is misleading to say in the series statement to that book and others that there is a new `paradigm,' an overworked and ambiguous term, anyway. There is no one theory of analytical Marxism, not even one way of doing analytical Marxism. It is certainly not a movement, either theoretical or practical, with a core set of beliefs. Those who engage in analytical Marxism have all sorts of beliefs and approaches. Page 6 Still, analytical Marxism(s) is an important phenomenon. The mere existence of Marxism as an area of investigation, especially in philosophy, is important in itself.
