Marx and Philosophy (Day 1)
This is a multi-day conference (February 21-22, 10 am-4:30 pm)
Speakers include: Banu Bargu, Eleanor Kaufman, A. Kiarina Kordela, Warren Montag, Vittorio Morfino, Ted Stolze, and Massimiliano Tomba.
This two-day conference seeks to generate and examine the conceptual problems, questions and returns of the relationships (and non-relationships) of Marx and philosophy. What philosophical debts does Marx inherit or incur? How does Marx think and intervene in philosophy? What transformations occur in philosophy as a result of Marx’s interventions and how do these transformations, in turn, inflect the current philosophical conjuncture? We aim to determine the positions animating their oft-remarked contrarieties and irreducible antagonisms, as well as to investigate their less often considered coincidence and mutual presupposition.
