READING GROUP | God and the State (1/3)
WHEN23 JULY, 19:00
Soo, we continue our collective self-education exercise by reading Bakunin's God and the State (1882). The text itself spans some 40 pages, starts with chapter I and ends with IV. We're splitting the text and hence the readings into three parts. For this first reading, let's cover chapter I and part of chapter II till the paragraph What is authority? It's about 10 pages only - we read them at home and meet to discuss. Don't be alarmed by the draft-like nature of the text, nor its abrupt end; for life itself is but a fragment. If there is time in the end, we will do a quick recap of the Communist Manifesto discussed in the previous meeeting - so if you have any questions or comments on the manifesto, bring them (along with your friends)! You can find the text here, in various formats (e.g. plain pdf). Onwards!
