Will Marx help to understand the economic and social crisis?

Will Marx help to understand the economic and social crisis?

This will be discussed at the next meeting of the 17 Group.

When?

Wednesday the 6th of October at 7pm,
in unit 6 at 20 Drury St.

The speaker will be left scholar and university lecturer on political theory, David Eden.

Brief summary:

‘Marxs Capital and the politics of crisis’

Crisis plays a special and often unexamined role in Left thought.

Here I want to look at how Marx theorised crisis in Capital and then three contemporary applications of this thought (that of David Harvey, the post-operaismo and the Midnight Notes Collective).

From here I wish to discuss what role thinking about crisis might play in the regeneration of emancipatory anti-capitalist politics.

Usual contretemps with Leon. Thought the first line of notice should have begun: Will Trotsky helpetc.

May still front through force of ideological habit.

But come anyway and bring the family copy of Capital to check the references.
