David Harvey talks about the relevance of Marx’s Capital today
What has Marx done today?
"All I know is that I am not a Marxist," Karl Marx is reported to have said. He made this much quoted remark with a nod to the Marxist current developing in France at the time. We do not know what exactly Marx was distancing himself from. What is certain, however, is he could not have anticipated one thing: the extent to which, following his death, in his name, though in the form of an "ism," one of the most influential intellectual currents and political movements would spread across the entire globe – Marxism.
Zum 200. Geburtstag von Karl Marx wird die Rosa-Luxemburg-Stiftung einen Kongress veranstalten: eine kurze Woche mit Theorie, Politik und Kunst.
