CBK DSA Night School: What is Historical Materialism?

For the second session of our DSA Night School, we will be looking at three texts: an excerpt from Friedrich Engels’ “Socialism: Utopian and Scientific,” the preface of Karl Marx’s “A Contribution to the Critique of Political Economy,” and four letters written by Engels on the subject of historical materialism to his contemporaries.

You’ll find PDF copies of the readings as well as some questions on to consider on our website:

Please arrive on time, and come ready to share your thoughts. We look forward to kicking off the series with lots of lively discussion!
