The Debate on Human Essence: Round Three

In Internationalist Perspective #43, we launched a debate on "species being." This not an abstract debate, but an attempt to understand how, in a society crushed by the dominant bourgeois ideology and growing alienation, a project for a new society can emerge; how class consciousness develops. In this issue, the third round of debate, we publish four contributions - one by Max, a comrade from outside our group who understood the importance of this debate and wanted to participate in it. We encourage our readers to do the same.

'Human Nature' and Revolution - Max

Humanity Becoming - Rose

Species Being and Class Consciousness - Marlowe

Class Nature, not 'Human Essence' should be our Focus - Carol
