Episode Three: ‘On Ideology’ by Louis Althusser

If workers are exploited, then why do they keep showing up to work? Louis Althusser gives us one reason: ideology.

Ideology functions to maintain the status quo. Capitalism must reproduce itself in order to survive.

Join us for episode three of Ideas Matter, where we read “Ideology and Ideological State Apparatuses” by French Marxist philosopher, Louis Althusser.

Come for the philosophy, stay for the rant about our (broken) education system.
