This course is a critical survey of the key figures in the tradition that begins with the work of Karl Marx. We will begin with selections from those theorists that inspired and thus afforded Marx's thought. We will then read some of the most significant sections of Marx's writing. After establishing a firm grasp on what Marx said and why he said it, the course will then explore the various discursive trajectories that Marx's work inspired-this includes Gramsci, Luxemburg, Lukacs, Althusser, Horkheimer, Adorno, Benjamin, Habermas, and a range of contemporary critical, as well as decolonial, theorists. Key Words: Philosophy, Politics, Theory, Ethics
