The revolutionary origins of capitalism

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

Marx in Capital argued that capitalism enters the world 'dripping from head to foot, from every pore, with blood and dirt'. At the same time, Marx and Engels stressed the revolutionary nature of the emergence of capitalism and the string of 'classical bourgeois revolutions' that accompanied it. This talk examines how, if at all, these two notions can be combined.
