The Legacy of Karl Marx

Chapter
Part of the The European Heritage in Economics and the Social Sciences book series (EHES, volume 11)

Abstract

The citation of Blaug’s book, written in the tradition of the Whiggish mainstream, hints at the fact that Marx is still a challenge after the breakdown of the communist world at the end of the 1980s. Almost all modern sociological (for example Weber) and economic approaches are to a great extent a reaction to Marx’ (and Engels’) theory and critique of capitalism as a system of exploitation. Who was this German intellectual who had such an immense international impact on the history of thought and policy? Born in Trier in 1818, he enrolled at the University of Bonn at 17 to study law where he came under the influence of the radical Hegelian philosophy.
