Within the 21st century contexts of record levels of debt, rising inequality and social injustice, what could be more relevant than the writings of Karl Marx? This presentation will examine the importance of Marx’s theoretical contributions, aiming to offer the simplest introduction to his thought and method, without shying away from the complexity of his insights. It begins by thinking about the specific challenges posed by public engagement, exploring a number of core concepts in an easy-to-follow manner, and asking what they can offer us today. The presentation closes by arguing that despite the historical challenges, Marx and Marxism remain more important than ever.
