neo-Marxism

A term loosely applied to any social theory or sociological analysis which draws on the ideas of Karl Marx and Friedrich Engels , but amends or extends these, usually by incorporating elements from other intellectual traditions-such as, for example, psychoanalysis (as in the case of critical theory ), Weberian sociology (as in Erik Olin Wright's theory of contradictory class locations ), or anarchism (as in the example of critical criminology ).
