Theory Intensive on Marx with Bob Jessop (Lancaster)
This theory intensive will will assume familiarity with The Manifesto of the Communist Party and with the 1859 Preface to the Contribution to the Critique of Political Economy. For those who have not read them, these are recommended readings. The aim of the workshop is to persuade the participants that these are two of the least useful introductions to the work of Marx and to point instead to the continuing significance of Marx’s analysis of the historical specificity of the capitalist mode of production, including its relevance to the recent North Atlantic Financial Crisis.
