    The "Theses on Feuerbach" are eleven short philosophical notes written by Karl Marx in 1845. They outline a critique of the ideas of Marx's fellow Young Hegelian philosopher Ludwig Feuerbach. The theses form a basis for the activism emphasised by Marx's work, and this short text is perhaps best know for its ending - a Eureka for revolutionary socialism. The theses were written in 1845, but not published until 1888 (five years after Marx's death), with slight modifications by Friedrich Engels. The original text was published in 1924. This translation is based on the 1888 version. (Wikipedia/Carl Manchester) Translated into the public domain by Carl...read more

    Capital, Volume I is the first of three volumes in Karl Marx’s monumental work, Das Kapital, and the only volume to be published during his lifetime, in 1867. Marx’s aim in Capital, Volume I is to uncover and explain the laws specific to the capitalist mode of production and of the class struggles rooted in these capitalist social relations of production.

By showing how capitalist development was the precursor of a new, socialist mode of production, he aimed to...read more

    The Communist Manifesto is an 1848 political pamphlet by the German philosophers Karl Marx and Friedrich Engels. It presents an analytical approach to the class struggle and the conflicts of capitalism and the capitalist mode of production, rather than a prediction of communism's potential future forms.

    Plongez au coeur de la philosophie politique en vous familiarisant avec ses penseurs incontournables. Nicolas Machiavel, penseur humaniste de la Renaissance, a laissé derrière lui une légende noire avec Le Prince, traité qui fait résonner douloureusement la politique et la morale. Spinoza, celui que Deleuze appelait "le Prince des philosophes", provoqua aussi la controverse en ouvrant la possibilité de critiquer la pensée religieuse, et en défendant une pensée de Dieu fondée sur la logique plutôt que sur le dogme. Le Discours sur les fondements de l'inégalité parmi les hommes, de Jean-Jacques Rousseau, est resté l'un des fondements de la pensée politique moderne comme son...read more

The Theory of Alienation, which describes a dehumanising effect of capitalist production, in which an immediate social signifcance of...read more

  • Friedrich Engels

    The Communist Manifesto was conceived as an outline of the basic beliefs of the Communist movement. The authors believed that the European Powers were universally afraid of the nascent movement, and were condemning as 'communist,' people or activities that did not actually conform to what the Communists believed. This Manifesto, then, became a manual for their beliefs. In it we find Marx and Engel's rehearsal of the idea that Capital has stolen away the work of the artisan and peasant by building up factories to produce goods cheaply. The efficiency of Capital depends, then, on the wage laborers who staff the factories and how little they will accept in order to have work. This...read more
