Neolithic Tomb


New discussion series

Yes after a couple of problems, we have speakers lined up for some discussion groups meetings.

We are privileged to have Lionel Sims as our first speaker. He is a very distinguished anthropologist with much of interest to say about nature of humans and their development.

He will talk on the Neolithic counter-revolution and will be in the course of this defending Engels view of family etc…

There is much in this to learn about our present predicament.

We have a new venue, near Aldgate East tube – and quite easy to get to, even if not quite central.

We are now for the purposes of these meetings the ‘Individual and Society Interdisciplinary Study Group’ I had to have an official sounding name.

I look forward to seeing many of you there

The Incident


Call for Papers

Exploitation: conceptual, normative and political perspectives

Manchester Workshops in Political Theory, August 31 – September 2, 2011

Charges of exploitation are levelled on a daily basis against different agents in different contexts: trade and market exchanges, work relationships, as well as personal relationships. Although the concept of exploitation has been central to the Marxist critique of capitalism, the pervasiveness of exploitation has also received attention by non-Marxist political philosophers.

This workshop will attack three main questions: first, what exactly constitutes exploitation, second, whether exploitation is best conceived as necessarily involving a transgression of rights, justice or fairness and, third, whether (the best account of) exploitation can still function as a tool for effective social critique, from personal relationships (such as the family) to economic structures (such as the mode of production).

Our aim is a rigorous treatment of the conceptual, normative and political intricacies of exploitation. We welcome papers that contribute to this aim, including work in analytic philosophy, analytic sociology and normative political science.

Please send an abstract, by May 31st, to the workshop convenors, Adina Preda and Nicholas Vrousalis, at:
