LONDON MARX READING GROUP
Please find dates time and venue (map) for the London Marx Reading Group starting 10th October fortnightly.
We are reading the ‘young Marx’ and will begin with Marx’s short essay, ‘Introduction to Critique of Hegel’s Philosophy of Right’ followed by the full text, “Critique of Hegel’s Philosophy of Right”. These texts can be found here: http://www.marxists.org/archive/marx/works/download/Marx_Critique_of_Hegels_Philosophy_of_Right.pdf
Then maybe we should go on to the Paris Manuscripts, since it sticks to the theme of Marx’s materialist reworking of Hegel’s position, and provides plenty of economics that prefigures the text we have just read (A Contribution to the Critique of Political Economy) as well as Capital: http://www.marxists.org/archive/marx/works/1844/manuscripts/preface.htm and then perhaps we can aim to squeeze in ‘Comment on James Mills’ “Elements of Political Economy”‘ (1844). http://www.marxists.org/archive/marx/works/1844/james-mill/index.htm
We can play it by ear but this may take us up to the end of term. If we are willing and able we can then tackle “On the Jewish question” and “The Poverty of Philosophy” in the following Spring term.
Please find below the room bookings for next term. We are hosted at Birkbeck. We can aim to read the Introduction for the first meeting, or as much as possible…any problems email Elizabeth Jones – firstname.lastname@example.org 10th Oct – Room 112, 43 Gordon Square – 6-8pm 24th Oct – Room 112, 43 Gordon Square – 6-8pm 7th Nov – Reading Week – no room booked. 14th Nov – Room 112, 43 Gordon Square – 6-8pm 28th Nov – Room 112, 43 Gordon Square – 6-8pm 12th Dec – Room 112, 43 Gordon Square – 6-8pm Map: https://maps.google.co.uk/maps/ms?ie=UTF8&oe=UTF8&msa=0&msid=116236913161085608084.00048b5563538358f1878
