Karl Marx is one of a handful of people who fundamentally changed the way we see the world. His ideas have always been controversial and misunderstood. Today’s world has been rocked by major capitalist crises, revolutions and revolts from the Arab Spring to the Occupy Wall Street movement. Alex Callinicos is Professor of European Studies at King’s College University and the author of Bonfire of Illusions: The Twin Crises of the Liberal World and The Revolutionary Ideas of Karl Marx. He will be discussing Marx’s ideas and explaining why, ultimately, Marx was right.
Meeting will take place Monday 8th October at 7pm in the Erasmus Room of Queen’s college, access via the Visitor’s entrance on Queen’s Lane. Through the courtyard, upstairs. There will be signs giving directions to the room.
Alex Callincos, from King’s College London, is the author of “The Revolutionary Ideas of Karl Marx”.
