The Right to be Lazy and Other Studies by Paul Lafargue

This week’s book is a translation of some essays by Paul Lafargue, whose work prompted Karl Marx to write to a friend, “I am not a Marxist”.

Vindication of the Rights of Woman – Pandemic Books

“Men, in general, seem to employ their reason to justify prejudices, which they have imbibed, they cannot trace how, rather than to root them out. The mind must be strong that resolutely forms its own principles; for a kind of intellectual cowardice prevails which makes many men shrink from the task, or only do it by halves.” This week’s Pandemic Book is Mary Wollstonecraft’s Vindication of the Rights of Woman. This is almost certainly the… read more Vindication of the Rights of Woman – Pandemic Books
