Description

In recognition of Karl Marx's 200th birthday, WCGS is honoured to welcome distinguished Professor Gareth Stedman Jones, FBA, author of Karl Marx: Greatness and Illusion, to deliver the 2018 Grimm Lecture.

Lecture Title: When would Capitalism end? Marx's changing conception of the 'Critique of Political Economy'

In his lecture, Professor Stedman Jones will examine Marx's changing position on capiltalism.

The 2018 Grimm Lecture is co-sponsored by the University of Waterloo Dean of Arts, Balsillie School of International affairs and the departments of History, English, Sociology, Philosophy, and Global Engagement.

This is a free event, but we do request that you register.



A note from Professor Stedman Jones about his lecture:

In order to separate what is living from what is dead in Marx's theory, it is necessary to separate Marx from 'Marxism.' Throughout the 20th century, Marxism has been associated with the assumption that capitalism would necessarily end in collapse. Engels certainly believed this. But was this Marx's position? Marx's thought changed. I examine three phases in Marx's picture of capitalism and how it might end - the period ending in the 1848 Revolutions, the period ending 1859, and the period 1864-1869. I will conclude by examining Engels' editing of Marx's unfinished manuscript Capital.
