Engels and Materialism

Yuva Balan, Sosialis Alternatif | Ahmad Fuad Rahmat, University of Nottingham, Malaysia Campus

Engels and Materialism

We get to the heart of the matter; the matter of Marxist materialism, that is. Yuva Balan of Sosialis Alternatif joins us to offer a primer on the fundamentals of Marxist philosophy via the intellectual contributions of Friedrich Engels, a dear friend and collaborator of Karl Marx. We also reflect on his relevance and what it means for politics today, in light of Corbyn’s victory and the broader, global rejection of austerity.
