Illuminations: Rudolf Hilferding

Thu, 13 April 2017, 15:30 to 16:30

Christadoulou (Central) Meeting Room (CMR1), OU, Milton Keynes

Illuminations is a series of monthly informal talks on a range of key theorists who exert powerful influence within the social sciences. The format is a short presentation, followed by a general discussion on their insights, influence and interpretation in different settings. The aim is to provide a general introduction and create ongoing discussion of their work(s) for colleagues and postgraduate students from across the university, before retiring to the Cellar Bar for refreshments.

In April's talk, Dimitris Sotiropoulos (Senior Lecturer in Finance, Faculty of Business and Law) will introduce the work of Austrian-born economist and politician Rudolf Hilferding. First published in 1910, Hilferding's Das Finanzkapital (Finance Capital) remains an influential contribution to Marxist economics.
