Neo-Marxism is a loose term for various twentieth-century approaches that amend or extend Marxism and Marxist theory, usually by incorporating elements from other intellectual traditions, such as: critical theory, psychoanalysis or Existentialism. The Marxist Front incorporates this ideology in a pacifist, radical left framework. It is a proponent of:
