Karl Marx certainly is one of the most influential political theorists of all times. Yet this is already subject to debate, for is Marx really a political theorist? Is he not, first and foremost, an economist, a philosopher – or a revolutionary? Thus, we find very different ideas how to interpret Marx’ texts lurking behind these questions. In our seminar, we will focus on Marx’ political thought – which of course can neither be simply separated from his economic theory nor from his philosophical foundations. At the same time, the seminar is intended as an introduction to Marx. Hence we will read texts from all periods of his work, from On the Jewish Question (1843) and his Economic and Philosophic Manuscripts (1844) to the first volume of _Capital (1867). Precisely because Marx writing is as brilliant as it is difficult, his texts must be interpreted. Hence we will also look at how his texts have been read – for only the debate how to interpret Marx accounts for his actually in the 200th year after his birth.

 "Wilde Theorie" is a series of events within the framework of the Bremen Colloquium for Political Theory under the direction of Prof. Dr. Martin Nonhoff. Here, theorists in the phase between doctoral thesis and professorship present their current work for discussion. A public lecture at the Bremen Colloquium for Political Theory and a workshop the following morning will provide the opportunity to do so. Please register for the workshops in advance (see contact above), one week in advance at the latest. Further information on the colloquium and materials on the meetings are available on request from Martin Nonhoff (martin.nonhoff@uni-bremen.de).
