Speaker:

PETER HUDIS, author of MARX’S CONCEPT OF THE ALTERNATIVE TO CAPITALISM

Commentator:

SARAH MASON, former Occupy LA activist

In contrast to the traditional view that Marx’s work is restricted to a critique of capitalism and does not contain a detailed or coherent conception of its alternative, this presentation will show, through an analysis of his published and unpublished writings, that Marx was committed to a specific concept of a post-capitalist society that informed his critique of value production, alienated labor and capitalist accumulation. Instead of focusing on the present with only a passing reference to the future, Marx’s emphasis on capitalism’s tendency towards dissolution is rooted in a specific conception of what should replace it. In critically re-examining that conception, this book addresses the quest for an alternative to capitalism that has taken on increased importance today.

In addition to MARX’S CONCEPT OF THE ALTERNATIVE TO CAPITALISM (Haymarket Books, 2013), PETER HUDIS is the General Editor of the COMPLETE WORKS OF ROSA LUXEMBURG and the co-editor of THE POWER OF NEGATIVITY: SELECTED WRITINGS ON THE DIALECTIC IN HEGEL AND MARX, by RAYA DUNAYEVSKAYA
