      In 1818, Karl Marx, descended from a long line of rabbis, was born in Prussian Rhineland Marx s father converted to Protestantism shortly before Karl s birth Educated at the Universities of Bonn, Jena, and Berlin, Marx founded the Socialist newspaper Vorwarts in 1844 in Paris After being expelled from France at the urging of the Prussian government, which banished Marx in absentia, Marx studied economics in Brussels He and Engels founded the Communist League in 1847 and published the Communist Manifesto After the failed revolution of 1848 in Germany, in which Marx participated, he eventually wound up in London Marx worked as foreign correspondent for several U.S publications His Das Kapital came out in three volumes 1867, 1885 and 1894 Marx organized the International and helped found the Social Democratic Party of Germany Although Marx was not religious, Bertrand Russell later remarked, His belief that there is a cosmic force called Dialectical Materialism which governs human history independently of human volitions, is mere mythology Portraits from Memory, 1956 Marx once quipped, All I know is that I am not a Marxist according to Engels in a letter to C Schmidt see Who s Who in Hell by Warren Allen Smith D 1883.Marx began co operating with Bruno Bauer on editing Hegel s Philosophy of Religion in 1840 Marx was also engaged in writing his doctoral thesis, The Difference Between the Democritean and Epicurean Philosophy of Nature, which he completed in 1841 It was described as a daring and original piece of work in which Marx set out to show that theology must yield to the superior wisdom of philosophy the essay was controversial, particularly among the conservative professors at the University of Berlin Marx decided, instead, to submit his thesis to the liberal University of Jena, whose faculty awarded him his PhD in April 1841 As Marx and Bauer were both atheists, in March 1841 they began plans for a journal entitled Archiv des Atheismus Atheistic Archives , but it never came to fruition.Marx has been described as one of the most influential figures in human history Marx is typically cited, with mile Durkheim and Max Weber, as one of the three principal architects of modern social science.More enpedia wiki Karl_Marxplatoanford entries marx econlib library Enc birxists archive marx historyguide intellectc history historicspartacushoolnet.annica EBchecked t

    • How could one give a star-rating to Das Kapital? It stands, with Marx's canon, as one of the most influential books in history, perhaps rivaling only some religious texts. With three stars, I think I will have reached a compromise which will offend everyone.Das Kapital is Marx's attempt to codify and transmit his collected observations on the state of capitalism. This is a far cry from the soaring rhetoric of the Manifesto - its aim is to be both a systematic critique of capitalism as well as an [...]


    • دوستانِ گرانقدر، این کتاب یکی از دشوارترین کتاب هایی است که در زمینهٔ فلسفه و فلسفهٔ سیاسی و اقتصادی، به چاپ رسیده استعزیزانم، در زمان خواندن کتاب، برایِ معنی کردنِ برخی از واژه هایِ فلسفی و سیاسی و فهمِ برخی از جملاتِ این کتاب، بهتر است که از کتب یا رفرنس هایِ دیگر کمک بگیرید [...]


    • Had Marx avoided moral judgments in this tome, had he stuck only to symptoms of capitalism’s maladies, this book might still be read in the West today. Instead, Marx and his labor theory of value are considered discredited by economics departments and worthy of little more than synopses and essays about the work – Das Kapital is still cited by many and read by none – and this is probably because Marx’s moral remedy led to greater woes than capitalism did.This book is also too long by abo [...]

    • Did not agree with everything Marx saidbut there is no doubt that this book has changed the world.



    • Karl Marx's Capital can be read as a work of economics, sociology and history. He addresses a myriad of topics, but is most generally trying to present a systematic account of the nature, development, and future of the capitalist system. There is a strong economic focus to this work, and Marx addresses the nature of commodities, wages and the worker-capitalist relationship, among other things. Much of this work tries to show the ways in which workers are exploited by the capitalist mode of produ [...]


    • It’s shameful that it’s taken me so long to read 'Capital'. I should have done so when I was an undergrad, more than a decade ago. This is not my first attempt, though. I borrowed an aged hardback library edition of Volume 1 in 2011 and was defeated by the 8 (EIGHT) forewords and prefaces; I never made it to Marx’s actual words. This edition seemed more manageable, due to being abridged and having a mere four introductions and prefaces. Abridged or not, ‘Capital’ is undoubtedly hard wo [...]


    • Granted I only read it the half way through. But it was still about 600 pages that I read over this summer. It's unlikely that I will return to this book. The experience of reading this book felt like taking a very difficult intellectual hike. The book was massive and very detailed. Maybe one day I can return to it and understand it better.


    • If you want to know why Marx is considered to be a "Materialist" by some writers and thinkers, go no further. This is perhaps Marx most densely philosophical book. This is due to Marx breaking down (much like Adam Smith--even with the same language) the Industrial Revolution and Capitalism, how it works and what it does. It ultimately had to be finished by Marx sponsor Fred Engels (who was a Capitalist bastard) and you can't really tell the difference. Some think that Marx (who was basically jou [...]


    • کتاب را با ترجمه ایرج اسکندری که ترجمه بدتری نسبت به نسخه نشر آگاه است خواندم. به همه قسمت هایش نرسیدم ولی در مجموع کمک بزرگی برایم بود سرمايه نكارش دقيق و فني ماركس درباره مفاهيم كالا و مبادله و بازار و بول و كار و عناصر نظام سرمايه داري است كه از منطق خاص ماركس بيروي ميكند و در [...]


    • Ugh.Soul-crushing in its hatred of human nature, and irritating in its misconstruing of economic maxims. Beginning with a vast oversimplification of Adam Smith's theory of value, Marx proceeds to describe, for ants, bees and other insectile collectivists, the kind of economics he wishes had evolved among humans. He then offers--via a distortion of the Hegelian dialectic, which is itself a distortion of logic--a historicist, "scientific" account of how the "proletariat" will inevitably rise and t [...]


    • Karl would be spinning in his grave right now and in between gaffuws saying I TOLD YOU SO! as America saves its most stalwart capitalist icons with socialist policies! Read it and understand that the only real value is human labort paper or plastic.


    • Breathtaking and revolutionary engagement with means of production, surplus value, alienation of labor, and other capitalistic phenomenons.


    • ایده بنیادین مارکس در سرمایه نظریه ارزش کار است. در نظر مارکس هر کالایی یک ارزش مصرفی و یک ارزش مبادله ای دارد که ارزش مبادله ای هر کالا تماما با مقدار کار صرف شده جهت تولید آن تعیین می شود. مارکس اطمینان بسیار زیادی به این نظریه دارد و در جای جای پاره یکم کتاب در صدد توجیه آن است [...]


    • Whatever your political stance it's impossible to deny the influence of Marx's works, this one in particular. It's a real wonder, how one persons ideology put into written word can shape the world even today. At the very least, you can appreciate it from that standpoint.Truly though, the book is convincing and reading it with historical awareness can enable you to enlighten yourself further. It's a great read, and I look forward to reading his other works.Christ, this review sounds pretentious.



    • I just finished reading “Capital”, Karl Marx’s seminal work on political economy originally published in 1867 toward the end of the industrial revolution. The following is a summary of quotes from the book that I’ve been tweeting for the past few days along with my impressions and comments on each. “The country that is more developed industrially only shows, to the less developed, the image of its own future.” #marxThroughout the book Marx appears to me to be similar on tone to all t [...]


    • As many will note, Marxism in its most "Marxist" sense is basically an obsolete system. Das Kapital is very much a product of the nineteenth century, and a perceptive reader can easily find traces of modes of thought that are no longer of the moment. But socialism, more broadly, is very much a living thing, and it is just as readily apparent how important this critique of the corrosive effects of capitalism has been to socialism's development.The edition I read presents the core of Marx's analys [...]


    • Das Kapital is one of Karl Marx's greatest published book, it was also the revolutionary book at that time period, even now this book provides a deep insight on capitalism and the pros and cons of it.This book, unlike the Communist Manifesto is more on a analysis on political economy and the ethics of a capitalist market. I recommend this book because of it's diversity, it is not a book about how bad capitalism is, but also the sociological, philosophical and economical impact of capitalism that [...]


    • I read this while in High School and at the time I thought the ideas where good but as I have grown older I have found that the ideas of Marx are incompatible with the driving forces of man. We would need to go through a radical evolution of mind to even be able to adopt any of Marx and if you take his ideas and apply them to a microcosm of individual families you can see the break down pretty quickly.


    • This was great, it's just really hard to read, that's why it took me nearly 3 months to finish this. I should probably get myself some "Marx for Morons" :D


    • مارکس اين کتاب را نقدی بر اقتصاد بورژوائی از ديدگاه منافع طبقه کارگر میداند


    • Доводилося читати під примусом, не дуже й хотілося. Зараз розумієш, що твір фундаментальний і важливий, якщо відкинути ідеологічні його аспекти.


    • Reading Das Kapital by Marx was a month long struggle and, I must admit, that after I slogged through the first part I kept on reading only out of spite.Marx's magnum opus didn't age well, in part because it is so atrociously written. The book is full of gratuitous use of Latin, French, Italian (and I assume that in the original - German - edition, English too), subtle literally call outs (e.g «Who fails here to call to mind our good friend, Dogberry, who informs neighbour Seacoal, that, “To [...]


    • I read this book for one of my classes at the U. Here is the best summary of the book I could find:The central driving force of capitalism, according to Marx, was in the exploitation and alienation of labour. The ultimate source of capitalist profits and surplus was the unpaid labor of wage laborers. Employers could appropriate the new output value because of their ownership of the productive capital assets—protected by the state. By producing output as capital for the employers, the workers c [...]


    • Let's face it, Marx was more philosopher than economist. He spent a lifetime trying to justify a particular ideology/philosophyd primarily on jealousy. He insists upon putting an intrinsic value of things (e.g labor).rather than the value which the market determines for them, based on their free marketable worth based on free exchange. In a fair and free market, labor is not "cheated". It is just like any other product, which is demanded and supplied. Keep in mind that much of what you see today [...]


    • Buy it keep it do read it sometime is all I can say of this book. Not everyone will be interested in the concepts expressed in the pages. However, going through the concepts helps one in understanding the delicate relationship of humans with other humans within the structured frame-work of civilization.
