Welcome! This website belongs to PolyluxMarx and provides material for use while reading Capital
For several years now, people have been starting to dust off Marx and return to his analysis of society. This is mainly due to the social turmoil in global capitalism, weaknesses in prevailing explanations of economic relationships and the harrowing crises the world has faced since the 1990s. In particular, a younger generation of readers – untainted by former ideological battles – is starting to read Capital. Whether in universities, educational institutions, unions, or in their own living rooms, small groups are discussing Marx’s critique of political economy. This is exactly what PolyluxMarx aims to support. This website provides a collection of annotated PowerPoint slides that illustrate the central arguments from Capital. We also use concise introductory texts and notes on methodology and learning to make Capital easier to read.
You can download all of the PowerPoint slides available on this page and preview the first slide in a set by clicking on it.
