Karl Marx, animal rights and the revitalization of utopia
Tobias Rein

In my presentation I will speak about the topicality of Karl Marx, especially his critique of the political economy. I aim to link his critique of capitalism to the animal rights movement and will show that Marx`s notion of a "utopian society" is not a mere dream, but a normative standard that we can try to live up to. To understand Marx`s critique means to understand capitalism and the animal rights movement needs a critique of capitalism to be successful, even though Marx himself never was an animal rights activist.
