Marxism after Marx with Stanley Aronowitz

Karl Marx

In recent times, left schol­ars, mil­i­tants, and the­o­rists have returned to Marx in the hope of find­ing the rev­o­lu­tion­ary truth. Although the study of Marx and his immense pro­duc­tion of crit­i­cal analy­sis is nec­es­sary and demand­ing, it alone can­not replace the more cur­rent the­o­ret­i­cal inter­ven­tions of the mid­dle twen­ti­eth cen­tu­ry through the first two decades of the 21st cen­tu­ry. This course will focus on three of the most orig­i­nal con­tem­po­rary ver­sions of Marx­ism which have tak­en into account cur­rent con­di­tions. We will encounter and focus on the exem­plary and orig­i­nal work of the Frank­furt School, Hen­ri Lefeb­vre, and Anto­nio Negri. The hope is to think in our times with new con­cepts and cat­e­gories need­ed for under­stand­ing and mak­ing rad­i­cal change.
