Eleven Theses on Feuerbach

Eleven Theses on Feuerbach by Karl Marx
By: (1818-1883)

In "Eleven Theses on Feuerbach," Karl Marx presents a concise and incisive critique of the philosophical ideas of Ludwig Feuerbach. The eleven short theses explore the relationship between theory and practice, the importance of materialism and the need for social change. Marx argues that philosophers have traditionally sought to interpret the world, but the real task is to change it. The theses are written in a clear and straightforward style, making them accessible to readers of all backgrounds.

Marx's ideas presented in this book have had a profound impact on a wide range of disciplines, from philosophy to sociology to political theory. His emphasis on the importance of social and economic forces in shaping human behavior continues to be relevant today. While some may find Marx's arguments challenging or controversial, "Eleven Theses on Feuerbach" is a thought-provoking and important work for anyone interested in understanding the relationship between ideas and action. Overall, this book is a valuable contribution to the field of social theory and philosophy.

Book Description:

The “Theses on Feuerbach” are eleven short philosophical notes written by Karl Marx in 1845. They outline a critique of the ideas of Marx’s fellow Young Hegelian philosopher Ludwig Feuerbach. The theses form a basis for the activism emphasised by Marx’s work, and this short text is perhaps best know for its ending – a Eureka for revolutionary socialism.

The theses were written in 1845, but not published until 1888 (five years after Marx’s death), with slight modifications by Friedrich Engels. The original text was published in 1924. This translation is based on the 1888 version.
