Marx’s mission statement at the heart of the Grundrisse reads as follows: “The exact development of the concept of capital is necessary since it is the fundamental concept of modern economics, just as capital itself is the foundation of bourgeois society. The sharp formulation of the presuppositions of the (capital) relation must bring out all the contradictions of bourgeois production, as well as the boundary where it drives beyond itself.”
The aim of this 12- session course is to survey Marx’s political economic writings in 12 sessions to assess how far he succeeded in this mission and how far his findings illuminate contemporary conditions.
