WORKSHOP:
Invitation to the Study of Marx

“Clarity about the aims and problems of socialism is of greatest significance in our age of transition.” Einstein’s comment remains true in our Century, when the growing interest in socialism is matched by a growing confusion about the potential of socialism to address the real- life concerns of our species. This workshop will encourage activists to begin a serious study of Marx, who founded the science of socialism, through a close reading of his classic work, The Communist Manifesto, led by Gene Ruyle and other members of the Institute for the Critical Study of Society at the Niebyl-Proctor Marxist Library in Oakland.

ABOUT THE INSTITUTE
The Institute for the Critical Study of Society at the Niebyl-Proctor Marxist Library (online at: icssmarx.org) was formed to further the Library's goals of preserving our written heritage, as well as supporting emerging struggles for racial and gender equality, and for Socialism. The members of ICSS are active in different aspects of people’s struggles in the Bay Area and globally. Some are affiliated with specific political parties and tendencies, others are not. We respect one another, but we do not necessarily agree on all issues. Accordingly, the opinions expressed in our lectures, workshops, and publications are those of the authors only and do not represent a group consensus on the issues discussed. We are united, however, in our respect for the work of Karl Marx and our belief that his work will remain as important for the class struggles of the future as they have been for the past. As a group, we continue to draw inspiration from the work of Karl Marx, including his Eleventh Thesis on Feuerbach:

“The philosophers have only interpreted the world,
in various ways; the point is to change it.”
