Modelling (3) Platypus

What is a platypus? 

"We are motivated, after failed and betrayed attempts at emancipation, and in light of their inadequate self-understanding, to re-appropriate this history in the service of possibilities for emancipatory struggle in the present – and the future.

Towards such ends, we might begin (perhaps provocatively) with the list of names that indicate the thoughts and problems issuing from events that still speak to us in the present: Marx, Lenin, Luxemburg, Trotsky, Adorno."
