Why is Marxism the major secular religion of our day? This book seeks to answer the question by examining the complex inter -relationship of Karl Marx's life and writings. Tracing the evolution of his ideology in the context of the nineteenth century and of the Industrial Revolution, the author looks closely at his early poems and essays, as well as at his relations with his father and family, and his early philosophical, economic, and revolutionary writings. In examining how Marx worked toward the economic theory of history that culminated in Das Kapital , he illuminates the so-called conflict between the 'young' humanist Marx and the 'old' scientific Marx by concentrating on a human Marx who consistently pursued his revolutionary millenial vision in both phases of his career. Readership: philosophers; historians; students of political and economic thought.
