Anti-Dühring is one of the basic works. The pamphlet "Socialism: Utopian and Scientific" was extracted from it. In this book, first published in 1877, Engels began by writing a polemic against a socialist "systematiser." To do so, Engels had to explain the dialectical view of science and society, and how he and Marx came to understand capitalism. By the third edition, Dühring had faded from the scene, but the book remained popular, so Engels stripped out some of the parts focusing on Dühring's ideas, and expanded the parts on Political Economy (from material provided by Marx for the first edition, which had been removed for considerations of length). By the time this was written, Marx had a mature analysis of Capitalism, so this is a very good place for a student to begin. · Session 1 (April 13): Prefaces and Introduction · Session 2 (April 27): Part I: Philosophy · Session 3 (May 11): Part II: Political Economy · Session 4 (May 25): Part III: Socialism
