I just got word that Andrew Giles-Peters (below) died earlier this week.
Among other things, Andrew was an anarchist, a student activist in the late 1960s and ’70s, and a philosopher who wrote and taught extensively on revolutionary history and ideology, including developing a libertarian interpretation of Marx (see for example his translation of ‘Ten Theses on Marxism Today’ by Karl Korsch, originally published in Telos, Winter 1975/6, and ‘Karl Korsch: A Marxist Friend of Anarchism’, originally published in Red & Black, No.5, 1973. On Karl Korsch, see Douglas Kellner, editor, Karl Korsch: Revolutionary Theory, University of Texas Press, Austin & London, 1974 [PDF]).
I met Andrew at LaTrobe in the early ’90s, and found him to be friendly, knowledgeable and open-minded — a quiet inspiration.
Best wishes to Andrew’s family and friends.
