Karl Marx

Elwell Karl Marx (1818-1883) is a difficult theorist to write about. A good deal of the problem is that he has become a major figure in history.

A related problem with writing about Marx is the multiple roles he played during his lifetime. His fellow human beings. But here we will focus almost exclusively on Marx as a social theorist. Marxism. The simple explanation of Marxism: Marxism is a philosophy, a world-view, a system of social and economic analysis, and, it became political doctrine.

I bought an apple for 5 cents, spent the evening polishing it, and sold it the next day for 10 cents. Karl Marx sought the answers to these questions by trying to understand how our capitalist society works (for whom it works better, for whom worse), how it arose out of feudalism and where it is likely to lead. The main theories that make up this analysis—the theory of alienation, the labor theory of value, and the materialist conception of history—must all be understood with this focus in mind.

Some socialist ideas can be traced as far back as the Bible, but Marxism has its main intellectual origins in German philosophy, English political economy, and French utopian socialism. Marx's study of capitalism was grounded in a philosophy that is both dialectical and materialist. Marx, Karl, Wage Labor and Capital. The Bolsheviks Storm the Winter Palace, 1917.
