Revisiting Marx’s Critique Of Liberalism In 2021: Implications For Political Theory And Practice

April 8 @ 12:30 pm - 1:45 pm

A talk by Igor Shoikhedbrod, Assistant Professor of Political Science, Univ. of Toronto (Mississauga) and Adjunct Faculty, Trinity College, Univ. of Toronto (Toronto)

Karl Marx was a powerful critic of capitalism and a revolutionary democrat, whose critique of liberalism was inspired foremost by its failure rather than its success in bringing about human emancipation. Shoikhedbrod proposes an alternative way of approaching Marx’s treatment of rights that demonstrates why conventional liberal and Marxist interpretations on this topic are mistaken. Champions of freedom have renewed reasons for revisiting and rethinking the relevance of Marx’s critique of liberalism today.
