About this seminar:
The abolition of private property is a refrain that traces to antiquity, but its modern form emerged at the time of other abolitionist movements. This seminar will explore the most influential writings and thought on the abolition of property, Marx and Engels’ The Communist Manifesto and Proudhon’s writings on property.
