Marx on revolution: From radical democracy to the Commune

10:00am Sunday 2 September

About this session

This session, part of our commemoration of Marx’s 200th birthday, will examine the evolution of Marx’s thought on the question of revolution from his early days as a Young Hegelian to the conclusions he drew following the Paris Commune. It will focus in particular on Marx’s writings on the bourgeois state, the working class’s relations with other social classes, and the political implications of all this for the struggle for the revolutionary transformation of society.
