Capital, Volume 2 with the Capital Studies Group
- This event has passed.
May 18 @ 11:00 am
An event every week that begins at 11:00 am on Saturday, repeating until July 27, 2019
Volume I of Capital is just the beginning of unraveling the underlying laws of capitalist development. After solving the form that the production of wealth takes within a society where generalized commodity production prevails under the domination of capital — including the commodification of the capacities of the human subject and materials and powers of nature, the two sources of wealth, Marx takes on the next big question. How can reproduction of society as a whole take place when there is no conscious social planning that insures that all needs are met and in the necessary proportions such that a continuous reproduction of the conditions of life can take place and reproduce the capitalist relations of production? Join us as we journey through this movement from the imaginary concrete to the abstract concrete to the real concrete. Come and challenge your way of thinking and understanding the world as it appears to you and begin to identify some of what needs to be overcome and done to bring about a better world.
The CAPITAL STUDIES GROUP has been meeting on Saturdays for more than two years. We are a group of workers, students, activists and teachers who have dedicated themselves to a chronological reading of all three volumes of Marx’s Capital. Newcomers are encouraged to join when your schedule permits.
