VIRTUAL COURSE: Tuesdays, February 7th – May 9th, 4:15 – 6:15 PM ET

Join us virtually for a close reading of Marx’s Grundrisse with Professor David Harvey. 

We’re excited to present another course, studying Marxist thought with Professor Harvey. The course will be structured around the soon to be published A Companion To Marx’s Grundrisse, and will be available to all, wherever you may be located in the world! 

Written during the winter of 1857-1858, the Grundrisse, also known as Foundations of the Critique of Political Economy (Rough Draft), was considered by Marx to be the first scientific elaboration of communist theory.

Required readings:

  • Karl Marx, Grundrisse: Foundations of the Critique of Political Economy, Penguin Classics edition, translated by Martin Nicolaus, ISBN: 978-0140445756. (The text of the Grundrisse can also be found for free on the Marxists Internet Archive. While any edition of the Grundrisse could work, the page numbers Professor Harvey refers to are from the Penguin Classics edition, so it will be easier to follow along with this edition. You can pre-order this text here

 

  • David Harvey, A Companion to Marx’s Grundrisse. Verso. Available February 7. You can pre-order this text here (please note that this book will arrive after the first class since that is the day it is available)
