THE MAGIC OF CONCEPTS: WANG YAN’AN AND THE ‘ECONOMIC’ IN THE 1930s AND 1940s

Tuesday 16th November at 4.00 p.m. in RHB 309 Professor Rebecca E Karl will give a talk entitled The Magic of Concepts: Wang Yan’an and the ‘Economic’ in 1930s/40s.

This talk focuses on how ‘the economic’ was construed philosophically as a historically-specific conceptual problem as against the Austrian School of Economics in the context of 1930s/40s China. Karl’s main protagonist is Wang Yan’an, best known as the translator of Marx, Smith, and Ricardo, who was also a major Marxist (albeit not a Communist Party) social theorist at that time.

Please publicise widely to colleagues and students

Many thanks
