      PUBlic Philosophy at The Garvald Inn – Wednesday 5th June

      On Wednesday 5th June, 8-10pm (not Thursday as usual), we will have an ad hoc PUBlic Philosophy event. Pascal Brixel (from Northwestern University in Chicago), Jan Kandiyali (from the University of York), and Barry Maguire (University of Edinburgh) will attempt to make a case for Twenty-First Century CommunismWe will offer a moral argument rather than an economic one, and rather than offering criticisms of capitalism (which is shooting fish in a barrel) we will develop a positive case for a radical alternative, based on the value of solidarity in our productive lives. All welcome as always. ¡Viva la Revolución!
