Jurriaan, it would be interesting to hear more specifically what you
think is problematic about the Althusserian theories?

Personally, I have found some of it quite interesting and useful in the
philosophical sense of posing many conceptual issues in a better way
(with all the limits that it implies). In particular the effects it had
on the work by scholars like Göran Therborn on the state and ideology
and Chris Wickham on pre-capitalist modes of production.
