    I suppose it’s a free of charge event.

  2. Daniel de França says:

    One thing that irked me it is that the text says:

    ‘The need for a Marxist politics adequate to the crisis is as great as such a politics is lacking.’

    While the title says:

    ‘Radical Interpretations of the Present Crisis’

    I don’t know who wrote that text, but it’s certainly someone that is not really a Marxist. It’s not marxism that is radical, the other theories which are vulgar and thus wrong.

    Calling Marxism a radical theory is part of the game of the vulgar economists in switching causes and consequences and this is a point which Marx highlighted throughout the whole Capital.

    • Ben says:

      “To be radical is to grasp the root of the matter.” – Marx, A Contribution to the Critique of Hegel’s Philosophy of Right

      • Ross Wolfe says:

        I love Lukacs’ quotation of that line, which then continues to quote Marx’s statement: “For man, however, that root is man.”

        From the Latin radix, for “root” (the English word “radish” also derives from this).

  3. Daniel de França says:

    I guess I had too much of the wrong meaning of the word, like being a rebel.

  4. Julia says:

    I would go, if I had a means to get up there.

  5. MrEverpresent says:

    Wow, this debate will be amazing. Too bad I live in god forsaken Europe. If Harvey doesnt prepare himself well this debate will be unidirectional. I don’t think that he knows about TSSI.

    As another person on the wrong side of the atlantic (London) I am really hoping the talk gets videoed and posted….
