read Read capital : You will certainly not miss the linguistic recapitulation. Our project, very similar to the project of Louis Althusser and his students, is to return to a formative critical text to use in our contemporary political struggles. That, I would say, was Althusser's project - like ours.

to qualify as having an age cohort, what factor must exist in a research study?

The proximity raises three questions that will hopefully guide our discussion in the seminar Critique 5/13 with Étienne Balibar, who has already written a brilliant foreword:

  1. How does Althusser's and his students' project work? Read capital Compare with our Project under criticism 13/13? What are the differences and if so, how could you influence or change our project here in Critique 13/13?
  2. How does Althusser's reading method work - what he calls symptomatic ( symptomatic ) Method - refer to the critical reading methods we discussed in the first seminar, Critique 1/13? How could the differences enrich our critical reading methods here?
  3. How can Althussers and his students interpret the content of Marx ’ Capital inform our content-related reading of Read capital so that we can do our reading of Read capital for the purposes of our current political struggles?

Project. Method. Commitment. These are three important dimensions that I hope we will examine in this Critique 5/13 seminar. And I couldn't think of anyone better suited to discuss these questions with us than Tienne Balibar, who was not only involved in the original project with Althusser and who herself co-authored the book Read capital , but has since become the leading and most influential French philosopher in critical philosophy and contemporary politics. It is an honor and a privilege to have Étienne Balibar at Critique 5/13!
