The Philosophy of Marx: Étienne Balibar in conversation with Alberto Toscano

Shedding light on the key areas of Marx's thought in this event is French Marxist philosopher Étienne Balibar. Author of the latest volume in Verso's beautiful Radical Thinkers series, The Philosophy of Marx. Balibar, and a celebrated student of Louis Althusser who has also written books on Spinoza and Locke, Balibar will be in conversation with Alberto Toscano (below), author and lecturer in sociology at Goldsmiths, University of London.

A very erudite speaker, balancing personal anecdote of his time working with Foucault, etc. and his experiences in May '68 in France with precise Marxist theory. Very enjoyable, but too short!
