We’re beginning a 2-part study group on the book “What is the Real Marxist Tradition?” by John Molyneux (https://www.haymarketbooks.org/books/806-what-is-the-real-marxist-tradition).

The years since Karl Marx’s death have seen the emergence of movements, organizations and governments declaring themselves to be “Marxist.” How can we make sense of this development? This short book is an attempt to untangle these “Marxisms,” to establish criteria for evaluating claims to stand within the Marxist tradition.

At this meeting, we’ll be discussing Part One: What is Marxism? The full text can also be found at the Marxists Internet Archive at https://www.marxists.org/history/etol/writers/molyneux/1983/07/tradition.htm.
