    Abstract:
    Volume 3 of Marx's Socialism from Within. Here I examine the necessity for transcendent standards vs conventionalism, checking relativism, subjectivism and scepticism. I address Nietzsche's 'death of God' and its moral implications with respect to politics. I close with a substantial chapter on Alasdair MacIntyre's virtuous communities of practice, arguing for the necessity of political community in order to extend these communities on a large scale to achieve the widespread social and moral transformation required in the modern diremptive world.
