OUT NOW – A PROMETHEAN VISION, THE FORMATION OF KARL MARX'S WORLDVIEW BY Eric Rahim
When did Marx become a Marxist? Eric Rahim's A Promethean Vision sets out to answer this essential question.
This book outlines the intellectual development of Karl Marx from a student of ancient and German philosophy through to his engagement with political economy.
Marx took the dialectical insights learnt from his days as a "Young Hegelian" and applied them to the arena of political economy pioneered by the likes of Adam Smith.
In analysing these differing outlooks and disciplines, Marx transcended each of them by developing a materialist conception of historical development that provided the bedrock for his further writings.
Eric Rahim provides a concise and accessible introduction to the origins of Marxism. The book is now available!
