Teach In: Anarchism, Psychology, and Law (Occupy Boston)

"Anarchism, Psychology, and Law," a discussion at Occupy Boston's Free School University on October 8, 2011 with Dennis Fox, retired professor of Legal Studies and Psychology at University of Illinois at Springfield and co-founder of the Radical Psychology Network.

Anarchists traditionally want both autonomy (individuality, independence, personal liberation) and community (cooperation, connection, mutual aid). Underlying their political and philosophical critiques of capitalism and the state are psychological assumptions about power, hierarchy, and similar dynamics. In this discussion, the group explores anarchist thinking about human nature and the nature of society, focusing especially on the development and purpose of law.
