Problems in Political Thought

Description:
This course explores Marx' political thought and contemporary marxist political theory. It will address class intersectionally, that is, by exploring the ways in which capitalism both produces racial and gender differences, as it also abstracts from concrete forms of labor in order to create value. The course will focus on an interrogation of Marx' theory of value and an analysis of the problem of political subjectivity. We will investigate problems related to class consciousness, and concepts like those of the multitude, racial capitalism, and the capitalist unconscious.
