In How to Philosophize with a Hammer and Sickle, philosopher and YouTuber Jonas Čeika (aka CCK Philosophy) re-invigorates socialism for the twenty-first century.
Leaving behind its past associations with bureaucracy and state tyranny, and its lifeless and drab theoretical accounts, Čeika instead uses the works of Marx and Nietzsche to reconnect socialism with its human element, presenting it as something not only affecting, but created by living, breathing, suffering human individuals.
At a time when ecological collapse is hurtling towards us, and capitalism offers no solution except more profit accumulation and exploitation, How to Philosophise with a Hammer and Sickle shows us the way forward to a socialism grounded in human experience and accessible to all.
Jonas Čeika is a writer based in Norway. He studied philosophy at NTNU and is the creator of the CCK Philosophy YouTube channel, which has over 170,000 subscribers and focuses on politics, philosophy and critical theory.
“Čeika achieves the admirable task of showing that there is still more to Nietzsche than the political reactionary or the apolitical philosopher, and that Nietzsche’s work stands alongside that of Marx as a call to ‘the great liberation’ of humanity.”
