Why Marxist-Humanism? Why now? A series of discussions on Raya Dunayevskaya’s writings on Marx
We will be discussing:
The coal miners’ strike, automation, and a philosophy for a new era
Marxist-Humanism grew out of the recognition that our time is characterized not only by state-capitalism, automated production, and counter-revolution but a “movement from practice that is itself a form of theory.” This discussion focuses on the “philosophic moment” of its birth.
