SOCI 145. Marxism and Radical Political Economy


This double graded seminar is divided conceptually into three main components organized historically and chronologically. The first part of the class will deal with the emergence of the capitalist system and the social implications of this development. In the second part of the class, we will engage in an analysis of the logics governing the capitalist system, as illustrated in the work of various radical and revolutionary scholars working within the Marxist tradition. The last part of the course will be dedicated to studying the impacts of the capitalist system on societal and individual wellbeing through the concept of alienation.
