Karl Marx - 200 Years On

6:00 pm - 7:00 pm

To mark the 200th anniversary of the birth of Karl Marx (5 May 1818) and 150 years since Das Kapital was published in 1867, the lecture will explore the possible affinity between Marx’s work in human history and Darwin’s in natural history. Enthusiasm for Darwin was shared by successive generations of Communists but Marx’s conception of a ‘natural human being’ was different.

In the new political and intellectual climate, Marx viewed competition as a product, not of ‘the struggle for existence’, but of private property and commercial society.

No reservations are required for this lecture. It will be run on a ‘first come, first served’ basis.
Doors will open 30 minutes before the start of the lecture.

Cost: Free of Charge
