Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Georges Politzer was a French philosopher and Marxist theoretician of Hungarian origin, affectionately referred to by some as the "red-headed philosopher." He was a native of Oradea, a city in present-day Romania. Politzer was already a militant by the time of his involvement in the Hungarian insurrection of 1919. He went into exile at age seventeen following the failure of the Hungarian Soviet Republic led by B la Kun when the country fell under the rule of the repressive government of Austro-Hungarian Admiral Mikl?'s Horthy. He settled in Paris in 1921 after meeting Freud and S ndor Ferenczi in Vienna. Five years later, he had read through all the major academic works, up to the philosophy collection. He joined the French Communist Party sometime between 1929 and 1931
