Socialist Reading Group: Happy Birthday, Karl Marx!
May 8, 2018 @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm
Karl Marx has achieved a lasting global impact, one that is greater and wider than any other philosopher before or afterwards. The Smithsonian Magazine published an article titled “Karl Marx Is the World’s Most Influential Scholar”. The article is based on a study and paper in Nature. Several information scientists from Indiana University Bloomington came to that conclusion based on how often Marx’s work was cited plus the number of works.
After the global financial crisis of capitalism in 2008, Marx was often cited to help explain the crisis. Marx is relevant because his work is based on science and an advanced method of critical analysis in philosophy and economics.
We need Marx now more than ever to help explain the nature of capitalism and the internal dynamics of its own destruction. Join us for a discussion on Marx’s legacy and contributions.
