Logan WolczakMr. MartinWorld Cultures22 December 2017Karl Marx OutlineIntroductionKarl Marx was a German social Philosopher, the chief theorist of modern socialism and communism (Karl Marx 1). “A spectre is haunting Europe – the spectre of communism.”(Marx 1). These were the famous first words of a pamphlet created by Karl Marx. When he first created his pamphlet The Manifesto of the Communist Party, he had hoped that his idea of equality would be so massive that entire countries would use it, but it went above and beyond what he had hoped. Wars would be fought about it  and people would die fighting for and against it. He wanted equality between the middle class and the working class (Proletarians and Bourgeois, respectively) because of the many economic problems in European countries like England. His idea boomed, making him one of the most well-known, loved, hated, and respected men in history.LifeEarly Life Born (1818- 1883). Because his father was a lawyer, he studied law at Bonn and Berlin, but began studying Philosophy at Jena (Karl Marx 1). He rejected idealism and turned to materialism.Early WorkHe became the editor of Rheinische Zeitung, but was suppressed because of his views (Karl Marx 1).He became a socialist in 1843 and began reading socialist philosophical works, and even started writing his own.Later Work and LifeIn 1847, he joined the Communist League, and at that point wrote his famous Communist Manifesto for the group with his colleague Friedrich Engels (Karl Marx 1).Lived in poverty due to the failed revolution in 1848.In 1864, he helped to found the International Workingmen’s Association.  Writes Das Kapital in 1867, and volumes II-III are published by Engels in 1885 to 1894 (Karl Marx 2).Marx’s reputation spread, as did the fear of him.
