Marxism after Marx with Stanley Aronowitz

In recent times, left scholars, militants, and theorists have returned to Marx in the hope of finding the revolutionary truth. Although the study of Marx and his immense production of critical analysis is necessary and demanding, it alone cannot replace the more current theoretical interventions of the middle twentieth century through the first two decades of the 21st century. This course will focus on three of the most original contemporary versions of Marxism which have taken into account current conditions. We will encounter and focus on the exemplary and original work of the Frankfurt School, Henri Lefebvre, and Antonio Negri. The hope is to think in our times with new concepts and categories needed for understanding and making radical change.
