The Fantin Reading Group returns this winter with a selection of interviews and essays from Cornelius Castoriadis. The texts have been selected as introductory-level readings with relevance to anarchism. While they should be of interest to those already familiar with Castoriadis’ thought, no specialist knowledge is required.
