Description

In this episode, Craig, Adam, Matt, and Will examine an early writing of Friedrich Engels entitled "Outlines of a Critique of Political Economy". How can we interpret the evidently moralistic language in Engels' work in light of the anti-moralism which characterizes his later writings with Marx, namely within "The German Ideology". In "Outlines", Engels offers a succinct but brilliant rendering of how the division of capital and labor precipitate other kinds of contradictions under the capitalist system.  Also, the cast identifies potentially problematic formulations within the text seem to fall outside Engels' intended methodology.  Other figures mentioned include Spinoza, Hegel, Feuerbach, Stirner, Smith, Ricardo, Malthus, Foucault, Deleuze and Guattari.
