Marxist critical theory employs historical materialism as a functioning approach. The theory explains the phenomena of ‘changes’ in various material conditions (ways of people producing life necessities) and how does it influence the social organization. To put it simply, the way someone works defines his/her aspiration and existence. It formulates a ground-up theory to view human society – the superstructure (high cultural qualities) which is based on lower cultural qualities (the base).

As I discovered when I attended a workshop organized by the Centre for Philosophy and Political Economy at the University of Leicester in 2005, Negri in particular, or rather Hardt's and Negri's Empire (2000) and Multitude (2004), have a set of self-styled 'autonomist' devotees within British business schools who see themselves as too critical even for CMS.
