In this video talk, Alan Woods provides an in-depth explanation of the revolutionary philosophy that underpins Marxist ideas.

Speaking at our 'Marx in a Day' event, celebrating Karl Marx's 200th birthday, Alan Woods (author of 'Reason in Revolt') discusses the philosophy of Marxism: dialectical materialism.

Alan explains why it is vital for revolutionaries to have a philosophy; why we need to examine nature and society from a scientific - materialist - perspective; and how the ideas of dialectics help us to understand the processes of change going on around us at all levels.

In the final analysis, however, our philosophy must be a guide to action - an attempt to understand the world in order to change it.

"The philosophers have only interpreted the world, in various ways. The point, however, is to change it."
