Marx and human nature

Socialism 2014

June 26, 2014
With Bill Keach

This talk is a close look at what Marx actually says about “human nature” in response to common objections that the goals of revolutionary socialism are in various ways contrary to “human nature.” The presentation emphasizes the ways in which ideas about “human nature” have changed in the course of history, and defends Marx’s ideas in opposition to currently fashionable alternatives deriving from postmodernism and from biological determinism.
