Introduction to Marxism.

Karl Marx was a historian, political scientist, philosopher, and sociologist who, in the second half of the 19th century, contributed one of the three pioneering theories that would shape the modern world – the other two being Darwinism and Freudianism. We shall first define historical theory as a general concept. Subsequently, we will not trace Marxism as a political movement or ideology, but rather examine the theoretical, philosophical and historical roots of the theory properly called “Historical Materialism.” Where did Marx get his inspiration from? How did this impact his theory of history? Which concepts and models in “Communist Manifesto” and “Kapital” are key to his theory of history? And finally: is his theory still relevant today?

Our friend, Internations Consul and History Professor Bill (William III Chew) will enlighten us during another of his fascinating talks, followed by an interactive exchange of ideas.

In order to make the talk and discussion even more interesting and relevant for you, I suggest you to read the Manifesto in advance.
