Marx and nature

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Many on the left assume that Marx's focus on the working class and the development of industry prevented his giving proper attention to ecological issues. This talk will examine various interpretations of Marx's writing on nature and suggest which of his ideas might prove most useful to present-day ecosocialists.

Recommended Books Available in the Haymarket Room:
Marx and Nature: A Red and Green Perspective by Paul Burkett
Marx's Ecology: Materialism and Nature by John Bellamy Foster
