The Spectre Still Haunting: Introducing the Revolutionary Politics of Marx and Engels
Wed, September 27 @ 5:00 PM - 6:30 PMFree – $80.00
An introductory 10-week reading group for those just getting acquainted with Marxist ideas, based on Marx and Engels’ elegant and rousing classic The Manifesto of the Communist Party and Frederick Engels’ Socialism: Utopian and Scientific. We will be guided by China Miéville’s thoughtful, provocative meditations on the Manifesto, A Spectre Haunting. While Miéville is best known for his speculative fiction, he is equally brilliant as a contemporary communist political commentator.
A manifesto embraces contradiction. It is unafraid of paradox.
It provokes and insists and jokes and it’s quite serious. –China Miéville
Facilitated by David Worley of the MEP’s Revolutions Study Group.
