Dialectical Naturalism: Marx's Ecology
Tuesday, 7 August 2012 at 7:00 PM - Tuesday, 28 August 2012 at 9:00 PM
The Foundation for Social Economics is proud to offer a participatory four-week workshop on the historical development of Dialectical Naturalism, the practical and scientific understanding of the essential relationship between humanity and nature as first formulated by Karl Marx in 1844. This achievement of Marx’s is perhaps his most poorly understood, and yet, of all his ideas, it is arguably the most vitally relevant to confronting today’s pressing global concerns.
In this paradigm-shifting workshop, you will be introduced to a Marx you may never have known existed. With the use of visuals, facilitated discussion and carefully selected excerpts from the works of Hegel, Feuerbach, Marx and Engels that form the foundation of Marx’s science—what we would today call an ecology—you will gain rare new insight, not only on history’s most infamous thinker, but also on the roots of the ecological crisis that grips the earth to this day.
This four week workshop will be held at OISE at 252 Bloor St. W., room 5-260 on Tuesday evenings from 7pm until 9pm starting August 7th. The suggested donation is $60 and pre-registration is required as space is limited. All queries can be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org. Facilitated by Heather J. Walker and Christian M. Whittall.
Supplemental readings are entirely optional and absolutely no prior exposure to the subject matter is necessary. Please visit thefse.org for further details.
