Theoretical Sources of Syriza's Left Platform

Organizing Committee:

This reading group will examine some of the theoretical sources of the Left Platform formation within Syriza. Week one will concentrate on politics and strategy through selected short texts by Stathis Kouvelakis, Nicos Poulantzas and Daniel Bensaïd. Week two will focus on the critical political economy of Costas Lapavitsas and one of its antecedents, Rudolf Hilferding’s 1910 work Finance Capital (selections from Part IV). The subsequent weeks will be devoted to a close reading of Nicos Poulantzas’s classic 1978 text State, Power, Socialism. Scheduling and readings will be open to revision.
