Andew Kliman

WHAT MUST BE CHANGED IN ORDER TO TRANSCEND CAPITALISM?

Joint Forum organized by The Commune and Marxist-Humanist Initiative

Speakers:

Andrew Kliman is author of Reclaiming Marx’s “Capital”: A refutation of the myth of inconsistency. 

Anne Jaclard is National Secretary of Marxist-Humanist Initiative and a long-time activist and writer in support of women’s movements and international solidarity movements. 

How exactly must the economic forces and social relations that dominate our lives today be changed so as to establish a real and sustainable alternative?

Kliman and Jaclard will argue that Marx was not only a theorist of capitalism, but a theorist of a new society, and that the time has come to develop his theory, instead of repeating abstractions about an imagined future.  They will employ Marx’s theory of a future communist society in order to analyze what features of present-day society are specific to capitalism and what must therefore be uprooted and transcended in order to lay the foundation for a world that no longer operates for the sake of producing “value.”

Monday 5th July, 7:00
