Normally I'm pretty opposed to doing online reading groups because I don't think they can work, but I'm going to be running this one as a prequel to the reading group I'll be running in real life.

Basically we'll read a section of a work on our own, and then at a designated time we'll post our summaries of that section in a thread I'll create. Everyone will summarise the section in their own words and post their own unique summary in the thread along with questions they had, points they found interesting, things they'd like to elaborate further on etc. etc. From there we can discuss everyone's summaries their questions etc.

For our first work we'll be doing the Philosophic and Economic Manuscripts of 1844 which can be found in text form here

https://www.marxists.org/archive/marx/w ... reface.htm

and in audiobook format here

http://www.mediafire.com/download/k3n46 ... f_1844.rar

We'll be covering the preface and wages of labour first, and the due date for summaries will be September 3rd. If a week seems too short a time we can adjust as we go on.

While this idea was originally meant to be used as a prequel for my real life reading group, anyone is welcome to participate.

Thread is up.

economic-and-philosophic-manuscripts-of-1844-reading-group-t1326.html

Lets keep all meta-discussion i.e. discussion about when we're doing sections and how the discussion is going etc. in this topic rather than the discussion topic.

I hope everyone was able to complete the readings and subsequent summary in a timely fashion. Did everyone think a week was a reasonable time frame for a selection of this length? For next week, if we agree that a week is a reasonable amount of time, we will cover the Profit of Capital.

We're going to throw a pause on the reading group due to unforeseen real life circumstances, we will resume when everyone is once again able to post.
