Domenico Losurdo to give a talk at the CUNY Graduate Center

Who wants to go see Domenico Losurdo discuss the problematic legacy of political and economic liberalism for radical politics? Anyone living here in New York and interested in the history of the Left should attend. I just finished writing up a draft of a review of his book, Liberalism: A Counter-History.

In writing it, I have read pretty much all of Losurdo’s work that has been translated into English. While I disagree with his interpretation in certain important respects, his critique of liberalism must be taken very seriously.

All that is Solid for Glenn Rikowski
