A Post-Capitalist Order

Gáspár Miklós Tamás, a political philosopher, was a prominent dissident in the 1980s and a parliamentarian in the first years of the Hungarian government following the end of Communism . He emigrated from his native Romania to Hungary in 1978 and taught for two years at the University of Budapest. After being fired for publishing (and signing openly) illegal tracts, he has become a leading figure in the East European dissident movements. He was elected to Parliament in 1990 and became Director of the Institute of Philosophy of the Hungarian Academy of Sciences in 1991. In 1994 and 1995, respectively, he stepped down from both. Tamás’s works have been translated into 14 languages. He is author of From Dictatorship to Democracy: The Birth of the Third Hungarian Republic, 1988-2001.
