Tuesdays April 13, 27, May 11, 25. Four-part study of Anti-Dühring by Frederick Engels . Read your own copy, or download: Classes are at the SMUD Customer Service Center, 6301 “S” Street, Sacramento, 7-9pm http://www.marxists.org/archive/marx/works/download/Engels_Anti_Duhring.pdf It’s 282 pages, so make sure you have your print options correct before committing. As web pages: http://www.marxists.org/archive/marx/works/1877/anti-duhring/index.htm . You may like this format better…or worse, but you will have to print each chapter individually. 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
