Marxist philosophy: Darwin, Engels and the evolution of modern humans

Marxism 2013

Charles Darwin transformed mankind's understanding of our own development, but the separation of social history and science created a real limitation in understanding mankind's evolution since the development of human consciousness. Join Louise O'Shea as she delves into the political context of Darwin's works, what they represented and the utility of Marx and Engel's political approach to these questions, which built on Darwin's works to offer a more complete understanding of the development of mankind and produced a theory of genuine social change.
