Crack Capitalismby John Holloway
The only possible way of thinking of revolution is as an interstitial transformation of society. This is already taking place. It is best understood as the revolt of concrete against abstract labour. A Marxism relevant to class struggle today must start from the dual character of labour and the non-identical relation between its two aspects, that is, the existence of concrete labour (doing) in-against-and-beyond abstract labour.
Interpretations of the 'Fragment on Machines'by Massimiliano Tomba
The ‘Fragment on Machines’ was and is even today the focus of radical and brilliant interpretations of Marx. This ‘Fragment’ is for many aspects futuristic due to its interpretation of automation of production. In my lecture I want to think back over the most important interpretations of this ‘Fragment’ from Bordiga and Panzieri to workerism and post-workerism. Moreover I want to underline both its force and its weakness by the light of Capital.
