Zero Squared #141: Class Consciousness

Feb 5th, 2018 | By | Category: Articles, Zero Squared

C Derick Varn is on the podcast again, this time to discuss Lukacs’ 1920 essay Class Consciousness. This conversation goes into the weeds on philosophical and economic categories and tries to both “Straw Man” and “Steel Man” Lukacs’ essay in an effort to point out what we take to be common or at least possible misreadings as well as what we take to be the best and most coherent readings of the essay.

If you haven’t already you might sign up to our membership podcast through our Patreon account. Conversations like this one with Varn are fairly common on that channel. You’ll also hear Varn’s on Symptomatic Redness podcast more regularly through our Patreon feed including a recent episode exploring the power of and some of the contradictions in the DSA.

As far as Zero Books titles that are worth reading, consider picking up Anselm Jappe’s The Writing on the Wall, Jason Barker’s novel Marx returns, or Shaun Scott’s Millennials and the Moments That Made Us.
