At the University of Warwick in 2012, Professor David Harvey delivered a lecture titled “The Contradictions of Capital”. He argued that the need for a coherent post-capitalist system today must be in response not only to the nature of capital but in particular to the nature of what Karl Marx called its “contradictions” if we are indeed to “displace, reconfigure” its foundational and fatal systemic features. In this lecture, Professor Harvey discusses the importance of the conception of “contradiction” and what he calls the “foundational basic contradictions” of capital as understood in the context of Marx’s work.
