SYMPOSIUM ON MARXISM AND THE PHILOSOPHY OF INTERNAL RELATIONS

It is our pleasure to announce a one day symposium on Marxism and the Philosophy of Internal Relations that will be held at York University in Toronto on Thursday, May 10, 2012, as an addition to the “Historical Materialism” Conference that is scheduled to take place there from May 11- 13.

The symposium will consist of four panels of two hours each, with each panel offering three papers (or talks) of 20 minutes each and a commentary by a discussant of 10 minutes.

Our hope is that this symposium will bring together many of those working on or with Marxism and internal relations… to share and refine our ideas as well as to build upon them. Given the total failure of mainstream economic theories and policies, and the social upheavals that have accompanied the current economic crisis, it is crucially important to develop more and better critical approaches to analyzing capitalism and theorizing alternatives to it. Without singling out any single interpretation, we believe that Marx’s philosophy of internal relations provides one such approach.

Bertell Ollman, Sean Sayers, David McNally, and Edward Winslow have already confirmed their attendance and participation.

Karl Marx

MARX AND ALIENATION: ESSAYS ON HEGELIAN THEMES

Sean Sayers

What does Marx mean by ‘alienation’? What role does the concept play in his critique of capitalism and his vision of a future society?

Marx and Alienation deals in depth with some of the most important philosophical assumptions of Marx’s work. It sets Marx’s account of alienation and its overcoming in the context of the Hegelian philosophy from which it derives, and discusses it in relation to contemporary debates and controversies. It challenges recent accounts of Marx’s theory, and shows that knowledge of Hegel’s philosophy is essential for an understanding of central themes in Marx’s philosophy.

Marx and Alienation explains and discusses Marx’s ideas in an original and accessible fashion and makes a major contribution to Marxist philosophy.

SEAN SAYERS is Professor of Philosophy at theUniversityofKent Hehas written extensively on Marxist and Hegelian philosophy. He is the founder and editor of the online Marx and Philosophy Review of Books.
