Professor Gareth Stedman Jones to deliver opening lecture in new series.


On Tuesday 16th January Professor Gareth Stedman Jones will deliver the opening lecture in the series Capital - 150 Years On: Karl Marx and the Social Sciences Today at the German Historical Institute

The lecture description is as follows: At Marx’s funeral Engels stressed the close parallels between the work of Darwin and that of Marx. But Marx’s idea of history contradicted the Darwinian idea of nature. This lecture will distinguish between Engels’s idea of Marxism and Marx’s inheritance from the German Idealist tradition and consequently his distance from Darwin’s idea of nature.
