Monday, October 16, 2000

6:30 p.m.

News & Letters Library, 36 S. Wabash, Room 1440, Chicago Loop

How do revolutionaries see the world, what are they doing to change it, and why? A series of fall meetings will discuss these questions and crucial aspects of News and Letters Committees, Marxist-Humanists in the U.S. The first will be a discussion on National Co-Organizer Peter Wermuth's presentation at the recently concluded convention of News and Letters Committees.

Kevin Michaels, Chicago News and Letters Committee local organizer, will open the discussion. Admission is free. Feel free to share this announcement.



The October 16 discussion will explore:

> The Logic of Capital—Congealing Human Life into an Impersonal Force While Endowing Impersonal Force with Life

> The Self-Determination of the Idea of Marx's Marxism and the Tasks of Marxist-Humanists Today (The Specter of Marx and The Power of Negativity, in Life and Thought)

> Forthcoming classes on a new book, Marxism and Freedom, from 1776 until Today

> Towards the Dialectics of Organization and Philosophy—or, concretizing the Marxist-Humanist concept of organization inseparable from the dialectic
