Marx as a Critical Discourse Analyst: The genesis of a critical method and its relevance to the critique of global capital

Norman Fairclough, Phil Graham
Issued Date: 15 Mar 2007

We argue that Marx can be seen to be e n gaging in a form of discourse analysis. We identify the elements in Marx´s historical materialist method that support such a perspective, and exemplify these in a longitudinal comparison of Marx´s texts.
