This site is dedicated to the Memorial Conference of Karl Marx, german philosopher and
The conference was in March 2004, held by College for Social
Theory (in Hungarian: Társadalomelméleti Kollégium -
TEK). We invited Frances Wheen, a biographer of Marx, to introduce his
book recently published in Hungarian. We had also discussions
about the economic future of the capitalist world system, the main tendencies of

In the students' workshops we discussed the german positivism-debate and
then the distinction between Marx and Haraway on human being.
After all we had a maroon in October with some teachers of BUTE.
