In times of crisis one feels the need to return to the reading of the “classics”, that is, to those authors who, despite the passage of time, are still essential to understanding society and continue to provide critical tools to transform it. Giambattista Vico and Karl Marx certainly fall into this category and Professor Marcello Musto will give a talk on their conceptions of history, and their main contributions to social sciences.
