    About " Karl Marx Friedrich Engels "

  • Karl Marx Friedrich Engels

    In 1818, Karl Marx, descended from a long line of rabbis, was born in Prussian Rhineland Marx s father converted to Protestantism shortly before Karl s birth Educated at the Universities of Bonn, Jena, and Berlin, Marx founded the Socialist newspaper Vorwarts in 1844 in Paris After being expelled from France at the urging of the Prussian government, which banished Marx in absentia, Marx studied economics in Brussels He and Engels founded the Communist League in 1847 and published the Communist Manifesto After the failed revolution of 1848 in Germany, in which Marx participated, he eventually wound up in London Marx worked as foreign correspondent for several U.S publications His Das Kapital came out in three volumes 1867, 1885 and 1894 Marx organized the International and helped found the Social Democratic Party of Germany Although Marx was not religious, Bertrand Russell later remarked, His belief that there is a cosmic force called Dialectical Materialism which governs human history independently of human volitions, is mere mythology Portraits from Memory, 1956 Marx once quipped, All I know is that I am not a Marxist according to Engels in a letter to C Schmidt see Who s Who in Hell by Warren Allen Smith D 1883.Marx began co operating with Bruno Bauer on editing Hegel s Philosophy of Religion in 1840 Marx was also engaged in writing his doctoral thesis, The Difference Between the Democritean and Epicurean Philosophy of Nature, which he completed in 1841 It was described as a daring and original piece of work in which Marx set out to show that theology must yield to the superior wisdom of philosophy the essay was controversial, particularly among the conservative professors at the University of Berlin Marx decided, instead, to submit his thesis to the liberal University of Jena, whose faculty awarded him his PhD in April 1841 As Marx and Bauer were both atheists, in March 1841 they began plans for a journal entitled Archiv des Atheismus Atheistic Archives , but it never came to fruition.Marx has been described as one of the most influential figures in human history Marx is typically cited, with mile Durkheim and Max Weber, as one of the three principal architects of modern social science.More enpedia wiki Karl_Marxplatoanford entries marx econlib library Enc birxists archive marx historyguide intellectc history historicspartacushoolnet.annica EBchecked t


  • This is interesting, not least because it is one of the earliest formulations of Marx’s understanding of historical materialism and his breaking away from both Hegel’s idealism and Feuerbach’s naïve materialism. The book starts with a very useful editor’s introduction where this work is located within both Marx’s and Engels’s developing understanding of what they were coming to view as the motive force of history. That is, the class struggle. What is interesting here is how frequent [...]

  • The German Ideology is frequently referenced as a great starter text for students of Marxism. Imagine my horror upon discovering it is nigh-600 pages long and a philosophical critique of previous philosophers.The first portion, "INTRODUCTION TO THE CRITIQUE OF POLITICAL ECONOMY" is the most essential. It is a run down of various parts of Marx's burgeoning Dialectical Materialism. The following three sections, critiquing the Young-Hegelian Feuerbach, Bauer, and Stirner in that order, is a real pr [...]

  • I've been feeling like I don't read enough difficult books anymore, so The German Ideology was my crack at one. It is early Marx and Engels, in which they are first iterating their theories of materialism. One thing that has always struck me from the few times I've read Marx.I tend to think of Marxism as philosophy, and it is always interesting to see how much it was offered as science, a form I don't think ages well for it. One other thing.Marx weighs in one of the old questions here: Whether i [...]

  • I have a soft spot for Marxhe has to be one of the most misread and misunderstood authors in history. I think this text, along with the Economic and Philosophic Manuscripts of 1844, really highlight the emphasis he placed on human consciousness and its intricate connection to the material world and mode of production which (alarmingly) conventional readings of Marx minimize, if not, completely ignore.

  • As many vaunted references as I've seen to The German Ideology, I've got to say, I simply couldn't get most of it. However, it's still a book of immense value. Let me explain.Marx in this book is, while formulating his thought, bouncing off of, refuting, and satirizing the positions of a number of now largely forgotten German idealist thinkers (Feuerbach, Stirner, etc.) and their approaches, condemning them for engaging in Hegelian shell games rather than actually pursuing a real, world-changing [...]

  • Obviously didn't read the whole thing, pretty much everything after the chapter on Feuerbach is just Marx being rude about young hegelians

  • Those looking to garner a basic understanding of what precisely Marx and Engels meant by dialectical materialism must start here. The two authors were profoundly polemical, and like most polemics they are best understood in context. CJ Arthur's introduction provides that context in a way which is chronological and easy to understand. Marx and Engels of course started out in the Young Hegelians. The starting point of their break with Hegel's philosophy came in their realization that Hegel's belie [...]

  • Written in 1846, unpublished till 1932 in Soviet Union. For the first time in this book Marx & Engels (i would say Marx&Engels with subject He, because i think they both can not be divided with one another, they both are indeed an appearance of dialectic) explained materialistic conception of history and emphasized communism as deterministic society. His criticism devastated German Idealism which had been at the time dominant in Prussia, especially Hegelianism and of course, the man who [...]

  • For all his nay-saying about German ideology, Marx (and Engels) remains a German ideologue--and a very thorough one. Materialism, as Marx would have it, owes a debt to Hegel and romantic philosophy in general. He (Marx)may have turned metaphysics on its head, yet he failed to remove the head. But there's no getting rid of it. Marxist economy requires a hidden hand, better said, a shift in ontology, or the way one values the world (and oneself). Materialism itself, if history is anything to go by [...]

  • In the beginning there was German Ideology (1845-6) and the EPM of 1844.Here, in Chapter One, Feuerbach is taken to task. This is the section everyone must read. A theory of history: turn that Hegel off his head and back onto his feet! What are the preconditions of social life? What are the stages of human development? What is consciousness? What are forms of intercourse? What is liberation? What are the ruling ideas (religion, law, politics) and their relationship to material life? These questi [...]

  • Evidently this is considered marx's first fully matured statement about his thinking. It's an impressive piece on many levels. Not only does he effectively topple the BS uber abstract tendencies that German philosophy had devolved into at that point (Herder, Hegel, etc.) by positing a system of thinking that was concerned with the actual material conditions of life. He also provides a devastatingly accurate description of the sense of alienation and futility which rampant, industrial-era capital [...]

  • Honestly, a lot of Marx sort of blurs one into another for me at this stage. However, everyone should read at least some Marx as a reminder that economics is not determinist and capitalism is not the natural order of things.

  • A good introduction to Karl Marx's philosophy. This book can present important issues about his philosophical thinking, such as, historical materialism, critique on the german idealism (Kant, Hegel,), etc.A pre-resquisite book before the famous Communist Manifesto and Das Kapital.

  • Verso il materialismo storicoScrivo un'unica recensione di quest'opera e de La sacra famiglia perché possono essere lette quasi come un unicum, rappresentando, accanto ai più noti Manoscritti economico-filosofici del 1844 il momento del definitivo distacco dei due pensatori dall'idealismo della sinistra hegeliana e dell'elaborazione di quello che sarebbe stato l'architrave su cui verrà eretta la grandiosa costruzione teorica marx-engelsiana, la concezione materialistica della storia.Entrambe [...]

  • The German Ideology is not a work of the later, anti-philosophic Marx: the one who was adamant on revolution and who tried hard to use his incredible intellect, pre-marginal revolution economics, and Promethean world history to get there. Rather, this is the early Marx.The book's philosophy, analyzed apart from the unfalsifiable claims, is great fun. Marx's focus on praxis, externalism, amour propre, and the perplexing relation between freedom and human flourishing are all boundlessly interestin [...]

  • BUMIDENGAN pemikiran yang menggugat, 154 tahun yang lalu Marx dan Engels berteriak yakin: “Kita berangkat dari bumi ke langit!”Kata-kata itu tak bisa diremehkan. Kita tahu, kata-kata itu ada dalam The Germany Ideology, dan tak lepas dari perjalanan studi dan situasi politik di Prussia saat itu. Pemerintahan Prussia dengan semena-mena menghapus undang-undang dasar yang memberikan kebebasan kepada rakyat, melakukan sensor yang ketat pada pers, dan mengawasi profesor atau guru-guru besar di uni [...]

  • Acabei lendo diretamente a versão da Martins Fontes e fazendo correspondência na versão da Boitempo pra conferir a tradução. Me pareceu bem truncado esse texto, talvez por não ter sido concebido como livro em si, uma obra acabada.

  • Skipped over most of the critique of "Saint Max" (which is the bulk of the book). It's mostly known for the first chapter, anyway. I maybe shouldn't have bought the whole thing, when the more useful parts are online and in various collections.

  • The only main thing I got from this is that Marx and Engels want me to be an individual by being exactly like everybody else

  • "L'Ideologia tedesca è l'opera più misteriosa e, insieme, più decisiva di Marx ed Engels. Composta tra il 1845 e il 1846 ai fini di una "autochiarificazione" e subito abbandonata alla "critica roditrice dei topi" delle cantine in cui rimase sepolta fino all'anno della pubblicazione (1932), essa costituisce il punto di svolta tra il "primo Marx", umanista e filosofo hegeliano, e il "secondo Marx", scienziato dei modi di produzione. Nell'Ideologia tedesca si colloca, se non altro nelle intenzio [...]

  • Written after Engels’s work “The Condition of the Working Class in England,” “The German Ideology” is a reaction to Ludwig Feuerbach and G. W. F. Hegel. It is not a direct reaction, but gathers the important parts of their philosophies and elaborates on them for a blending with the ideas of Engels and Marx. “The German Ideology” is an important work because it attempts to solve the philosophical problem of other minds. Philosophy often deals with individual reasoning and to further [...]

  • Read for Evil. I may get ideas from this mixed up with ideas from the Communist Manifesto. Also, I only read "First Premises of Materialist Method" and a little more. Marx is not a name that any American raised with the national propaganda of Capitalism and Free Market will rally to, but he has interesting ideas about how the ideology of the ruling class becomes the ideology of all of society. But under that structure how does change happen? The ideology of the ruling class must not be adopted u [...]

  • In which Marx discounts the logical Nihilism of Max Stirner. The ivory tower thought allowing Stirner to muse on the mind and wax solipsistic while the world in reality is crumbling around those who don't have time to "spout wise" and are desperately trying to make ends meet, (or are exploiting those trying to do so) is the sobriety test which Stirner,& all philosophy, fail if historical facticity is not front & center in an honest analysis. For his sabbatical from such mundane things as [...]

  • It's unfortunate that Marx had such a misreading and misinterpretation of Stirner. I think the two could have been pals.There's some good stuff in here about communism being the force that abolishes all that we know. And while I think a little bit of materialist thinking can be a healthy dose, I'm not really a fan of materialism or idealism and am skeptical of anything that claims to be the method of the totality. While historical materialism may have been an important counter to Hegel, I'm more [...]

  • Marx neste livro de Ideologia Alemã partindo da perspectiva da interacção formação social humana/natureza, analisando que é a matéria, em última instância determina a consciência, e dá-nos uma real visão sobre a história da humanidade, salvo ainda a crença " revolução proletária" como positivista e que salvará a sociedade das mercadorias. Partindo deste método de análise esbofeteia assim os idealistas e os empiristas, segundo a concepção materialista está desligado do modo [...]
