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

Wednesday 29th January 2014 7pm - 8:30pm 107 Charing Cross Road Literary Event, Chargeable Event

Marx is without doubt one of the most important thinkers in history, yet also one of the most misunderstood. 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!
