Über das eBook

Capital by Karl Marx is a foundational theoretical text in materialist philosophy, economics and politics. Marx aimed to reveal the economic patterns underpinning the capitalist mode of production, in contrast to classical political economists such as Adam Smith, Jean-Baptiste Say, David Ricardo and John Stuart Mill. Marx did not live to publish the planned second and third parts, but they were both completed from his notes and published after his death by his colleague Friedrich Engels. Capital is the most cited book in the social sciences published before 1950. The Communist Manifesto (originally Manifesto of the Communist Party) is an 1848 political pamphlet by German philosophers Karl Marx and Friedrich Engels. Commissioned by the Communist League and originally published in London just as the revolutions of 1848 began to erupt, the Manifesto was later recognised as one of the world's most influential political documents. Wage Labour and Capital is an essay on economics by Karl Marx, written in 1847 and first published in articles in the Neue Rheinische Zeitung in April 1849. This essay has been widely acclaimed as the precursor to Marx's important treatise Das Kapital. Value, Price and Profit was a speech given to the First International Working Men's Association in June in 1865 by Karl Marx. It was written between the end of May and June 27 in 1865, and was published in 1898. Karl Marx (1818–1883) was a famous German philosopher, economist, historian, political theorist, sociologist, journalist and revolutionary socialist.


Über den Autor

Karl Marx, born on May 5, 1818, in Trier, Prussia, was a philosopher, economist, historian, sociologist, political theorist, journalist, and revolutionary socialist whose ideas played a significant role in the development of modern socialism and communism. Marx studied law and philosophy, and while at the University of Berlin, he was introduced to the philosophy of G.W.F. Hegel, which Marx would later radically transform. He is best known for his analysis of history, particularly his theory of historical materialism, which holds that the history of all hitherto existing society is the history of class struggles. Marx's magnum opus 'The Capital' (Vol. 1-3) is a foundational theoretical text in materialist philosophy, economics, and politics. Marx's work in economics laid the basis for the current understanding of labor and its relation to capital, and has influenced much of subsequent economic thought. Alongside 'The Capital', Marx is known for co-authoring 'The Communist Manifesto' with Friedrich Engels, which further elucidates his theories of society, economics, and politics. Marx's literary style combines intricate scientific methodology, dialectical analysis, and an aggressive critique of capitalist society. His contribution to political theory and practice remains influential to this day, and he has been described as one of the most influential figures in human history. Marx passed away on March 14, 1883, in London, but his ideas continue to animate the quest for a more just and equitable world.
