Mon 8.13.12 | Lichtman on Alienation, Part One

According to Karl Marx, workers in a capitalist system are alienated from what they make, from the work process, from nature, and from themselves and others. So what did Marx mean by alienation? In this first part of a two-part interview, Richard Lichtman explains Marx's ideas and comments on human consciousness and potential in an era of intensifying social control. (Part Two airs tomorrow.)
