In their Manifesto, Marx and Engels predicted that one day the proletariat of the world would rise up in an inevitable revolution. This is based around the theory of how the world is defined by a struggle between and among economic classes, which will eventually lead to the establishment of a provisional vanguard state that would slowly transition a society to a communist society by abolishing class altogether. The procedure and the process of the revolution that is to occur, is built upon Marx 's famous generalization that ‘the history of all hitherto existing society is the history of class struggles’[ Karl Marx and Friedrich Engels, The Communist Manifesto, ed. by Jeffrey C. Isaac, (New Haven, CT: Yale University Press, 2012).]. Marx 's
According to Marx, the Hegel 's notion of alienation is associated with inherent part of the structure of the movement of Spirit. With dialectic movement in nature, this is an expression of Spirit. Through this process of reconciliation, alienation could overcome and Spirit would be free. Marx criticizes this process by saying this is merely an act of thought. For Marx, various kinds of alienation in the Phenomenology are ‘‘nothing else but forms of consciousness and self-consciousness ' ' (Phenomenology of Spirit).
He was also influenced by Ludwig Von Westphalen which soon became his father-in-law. He studied jurisprudence at University of Bonn in 1835 at the age of 17 and later in University of Berlin, with a major on history and philosophy, where his concern with philosophy soon turned him away from law. At the University of Berlin, the philosophy of Hegel was popularly known and Marx’s itself was deeply impress by its idealism and dynamic view of history. He joined the left Hegelians which sought a materialistic and
Introduction Karl Heinrich Marx (1818 to 1883) was one of the greatest geniuses to have graced human philosophy, economics, political science and other social sciences. So great has been his impact on the social sciences that Marxism as a way of thinking transcends the borders of discipline and thought. Born in an environment mired the ravages of 19th century capitalism and the rise of the industrial proletariat, Marx presented to us his version of class theory which, despite its many drawbacks, continue to mesmerize us, even today. The class theory as propagated by Marx provides an alternative way of thinking and looking at things in almost every sphere of life. Here the class theory has obtained pivotal position in the sense that the Marxist
There are no Gods or supernatural occurrence. Ideas, thoughts, etc. are all element of material reality. Engels introduced it but Marx's occupation in particular the works he anticipated to publish like Capital Vol. 1, the 18th Brumaire and the Civil War show the likeness to what Engels defined as historical materialism.
His philosophy had a massive impact on further development of European philosophy. Kant, an outstanding Dutch philosopher, in all seriousness perceived many of Hume’s conclusions. For instance, that whole material of knowledge we get from experience and that empirical methods of human understanding are not able to provide its objectivity and necessity, and by this, to substantiate the potential of theoretical sciences and philosophy. Auguste Comte’s ideas about some science’ buildings which linked just with the description of phenomena but not with its explanation, and row of another positivist conclusions were based on Hume’s skepticism. On the other hand, further development of knowledge and philosophy confirmed Hume’s anxiety concerning any philosophical conclusions.
He handled many issues in the area of philosophy, and he came into prominence with his analysis, criticizes and revealing the new terms. One of the term that he analyzed is epistomology, and in Kant 's epistomology we can not know the main meaning of the thing in real; he values the human mind above everything,and he says rationality works same for everyone. With this association mathematic exists,and with it 's effect we can comunicate with eachother. However,we can only reach limited information about reality, because we can only receive the knowledge which passes through out filters of mind. In the same way in moral philosophy, because of that every humanbeing has the same structure of mind,we can reach the common truths with using our mind,and these truths are only associate with our minds.
" (Avineri, pp . 13, 9, 14) Marx rebelled against Hegel's philosophy in which ideas were taken to be the important determinants of history. Marx’s critique of Hegel had moved from the history of ancient philosophy, to the conception of the state. To what extend is Marx far from Hegel? To Hegel, ethical life has three components which are civil society, family and government.
The founding fathers of sociology, Karl Marx and Emile Durkheim, have played a profound role in influencing the development of sociology. This essay takes a critique stand on the similarities and differences in Marx’s concept of alienation and Durkheim’s theory of anomie. Karl Marx’s works which are still popular to this day, attributes to the adaptability of his concepts in today’s society. For example, Marx’s theory of “alienation” has grown popular in not only political and existentialist philosophy, but also modern literature, psychology, sociology, and psycho analysis. In ‘Economic and Philosophical Manuscripts’ (1844), Marx considers labor as a conscious act, as opposed to just a physical act.
