"Marx helps us to see things more clearly"

Gesine Schwan has always been a combative Social Democrat, and twice ran for the office of Germany’s (largely ceremonial) presidency.

She remains one of Germany’s most well known political scientists, and: she is a renowned Marx-expert. In a conversation with marx200.org she explains why she considers Marx a brilliant thinker who has lost none of his contemporary relevance – and why she would nonetheless never accept wholesale his analysis of capitalism.
