This is a group for anyone, regardless of their beliefs, who is interested in politics, economics, Marxist or Marxist-influenced philosophy, feminist theory, societal change, social and economic history and the history of ideas. You don't have to be a partisan for any particular philosophy to participate, but you do have to be willing to engage with the material critically and participate in discussions with an open mind. We meet for an assigned text or set of texts at least once a month, and have frequent informal coffee meetups as well.
We will sample ideas widely, reading some core Marxist thinkers as well as numerous others from diverse backgrounds and strands of critical thought. Our goal is to expand the thinking of every participant and stimulate vigorous, if structured and respectful, debate on serious topics.
