One of the most influential thinkers of all times. The political movement for which millions were ready to kill, and die for. Welcome to the ARU course on Karl Marx and communism! Together, we will get a firm grip on the basic ideas of Marx around capitalism, history, and human nature. Then, we will travel across the turbulent 20th Century, through a prism of intellectual inquiry and historical commentary. Our guide in this tour will be a former card-carrying Marxist, Nikos Sotirakopoulos, aided by more members of the ARU faculty. Get on board!
