Over the last week, we have posted the autumn 1940 series of Karl Polanyi’s lectures as individual posts. Since the lectures were always intended to be taken together, we have also compiled them as a single set in the attached pdf, “The Present Age of Transformation.”
This e-publication comes with introductions by PRIME’s Jeremy Smith and Ann Pettifor, and also by the distinguished economist and daughter of Karl Polanyi, Professor Kari Polanyi-Levitt. These introductions draw attention to the strong contemporary relevance of Polanyi’s lectures.
We thank Bennington College for giving permission to re-publish the lectures, which are available on the college’s website in the original 1940 typed version.
