This chapter deals with the wide variety of responses to Macpherson's attempt to recover, with the help of Marx, an earlier type of liberal democratic theory that had been forgotten. It focuses on Macpherson's liberal, postmodern, ‘deliberative democratic’, and ecological critics, who either implicitly or explicitly could not accept Macpherson's Marxist affinity.

Keywords:   C. B. Macpherson, Marx, liberal democratic theory, deliberative democratic
