Sunday Morning at the Marxist Library READING CAPITAL VOLUME ONE, CHAPTER ONE @ Niebyl Proctor Library
Mar 18 @ 10:30 am – 12:30 pm

Before we even start, let’s remember Marx’s warning to “those readers who zealously seek the truth. There is no royal road to science, and only those who do not dread the fatiguing climb of its steep paths have a chance of gaining its luminous summits.” Our discussion will get as for into Chapter One as possible. We will read, paragraph by paragraph from the Penguin edition (translated by Ben Fowkes, 1976).)

Seating is limited, so plan to come early. We start promptly.
FREE – but hat will be passed for donations to NPML
