Description

Co-taught by Marxist philosopher and Jacobin columnist Ben Burgis and historian and critic of Marxism Thaddeus Russell, this course offers an opportunity to explore nuances and criticisms that can only emerge in discussion between people with radically different points of view.

For those who have not read Marx’s writings, the course will provide an introduction to his major ideas.

For those already familiar with Marx, the course is unique among university curricula in that it offers an opportunity to participate in a debate on the meaning and consequences of his work.

We will read and discuss The Communist Manifesto and selections from Capital, Critique of the Gotha Program, Inaugural Address to the First International, The Civil War in France, The German Ideology, and the Economic and Philosophical Manuscripts of 1844.
