In this episode, we release an hour of unheard material from our conversation with Professor Erik Olin Wright, who sadly passed away this year on January 23rd, 2019. Erik Olin Wright was a leading Marxian professor and public intellectual who taught at the University Wisconsin for over four decades.
It was truly an honor to be able to interview Erik Olin Wright, so much so that our long and rich conversation warranted splitting it up into different episodes. To hear the first part of our conversation, search "LEFT OUT: Erik Olin Wright on understanding class—a Marxian perspective."
This series, in our opinion, is an indispensable conversation for those interested in class analysis from a truly Marxist perspective.
Rest in peace and power, Erik Olin Wright.
