Speaker:  Richard Donnelly

Many people look at history as a dull academic subject; like Henry Ford they may say "history is bunk", although it should be noted that when he said that he was referring to the notion that history was just the recording of the acts of kings, queens and great men.

If that was the case then it would indeed be bunk.

The viewpoint known as the Materialist Conception of History is central to the world viewpoint of the SPGB, so the speaker will:-

1. Outline the basic viewpoint
2. Correct some illusions about the MC of H
3. Discuss the role of the class struggle
