A workshop at the School of Humanities and Languages, UNSW, Friday, August 23, 2013.

Location: UNSW, Kensington Campus, John Goodsell Building, room 119

There is a recent revival of interest in the philosophy, philosophical anthropology and social theory of Karl Marx. Much of the new work in this area focuses on Hegel’s and the Left Hegelians’ influence on Marx’s thinking, and the Hegelian concept of ‘recognition’, widely discussed in contemporary social and political philosophy, is one of the perspectives from which Marx is being interpreted today. This workshop focuses on Marx, recognition, and closely related themes. The workshop starts with a presentation by Michael Quante, a leading German expert, and the next two presentations by Douglas Moggach and Jean-Philippe Deranty address aspects of Quante’s interpretation.

10-10.45am     Michael Quante (University of Münster): ‘Marx and recognition: Outlines of interpretation’

10.45-12         Douglas Moggach (University of Ottawa): ‘Recognition and the causality of freedom’

12.00-1.30pm Lunchbreak

1.30-2.45pm   Jean-Philippe Deranty (Macquarie University): ‘Recognition in Capital: A response to Michael Quante’

2.45-3.45pm   Mark Kelly (Monash University): 'On the use and abuse of Marx for normative purposes'

4.15-5.15pm   Karl Moll (Macquarie University): ‘Marx's Hegelian anti-philosophy’

5.15-6.15pm   Heikki Ikäheimo (UNSW): ‘Genuine recognition between producers and consumers: What is it, and could it exist?’

Michael Quante spells out his interpretation in more detail in a Master Class ‘Species Being and Alienation in the Early Marx’.
