Marx & Morality (Minerva)

Morality is often considered to be ahistorical. In this episode of the Minerva podcast, the focus is on Marx, who, following Hegel, disagrees with this conception of morality. The guest is David Marjoribanks. His research focuses on the theories of ideology and the implications for morality in Marx and post-Marxism. He argues that ethical norms are not transcendent, but are already there, embodied within our social practice. Critique, he thinks, is the holding to account of practice to its professed ideals.

Joshi Gottlieb discusses Marx and Morality with David Marjoribanks. This is from the Minerva Podcast.
