Karl Marx

MARXISM TODAY – THE GRAMSCI ENIGMA

The ideas of the Italian Marxist Antonio Gramsci are popular on today’s radical left. But of all the Marxist thinkers of the classical tradition, Gramsci is the most enigmatic. His ideas often appear to be puzzling and contradictory and there is little agreement on the radical left on what the “real Gramscian tradition” is. The style of Gramsci’s writings lend themselves to these controversies, because they are often as opaque as they are thoughtful and innovative.

Luke Cooper tries to solve the riddle of the Gramsci enigma and considers the significance of some of his key concepts, for problems of theory, tactics and strategy that we confront in the modern world.

 

19.00 Wednesday 16 November, Bloomsbury Suite, University of London Union, Malet Street
