Online event talks about Marxism based on work of Caio Prado Jr.
Bernardo Ricupero, a political scientist at the University of Sao Paulo, will be the guest speaker at a webinar organized by FGV CPDOC’s Laboratory for Social Thought, called “Marx and Marxism in Brazil: The Case of Caio Prado Jr.” The event will be broadcast live on FGV’s YouTube channel on August 27, starting at 10 am.
The ideas of German philosopher Karl Marx (1818-1883) have caused a lot of controversy and disputes in the political and ideological spheres and influenced academia in many ways. In the 20th century, they contributed to the development of the social sciences in Brazil.
The aim of this event is to analyze one of the most original ways of using Marxist concepts and understanding them in light of the historical dynamics of capitalism in Brazil. In his presentation, Ricupero will explore the work of Caio Prado Junior, the author of the classic “Formation of Contemporary Brazil” (1942), among other books in the “Interpretations of Brazil” series.
