Event:2014/10/06 Jasper Bernes "Value, Capitalism, Communism" pt. 1
7-9 pm Free in the Omni Basement
Pt. 1 (of 3) of Jasper Bernes' seminar "Value, Capitalism, Communism"' will investigate the question of what value is in capitalism, and what types of non-capitalist societies would either preserve or abolish it. We will engage with the most speculative of communist and anarchist writings -- those that begin to imagine modes and mediums of social coordination and reproduction beyond capitalism.
Some texts we might read:
Marx, Critique of the Gotha Program Grundrisse, selections on critique of Proudhonian labor money Dauve, Eclipse and Re-emergence (new introduction addresses this directly) Spufford, Red Plenty GIK, Fundamental Principles of Communist Production and Distribution (council communist program, critiqued by Dauve) Kropotkin, Conquest of Bread
