Conor Cruise O’Brien’s First in Peace offers many insights into the philosophy behind the French Revolution.

Communism, which is also described as "Revolutionary Proletarian Socialism" or "Marxism," is both a political and economic philosophy. The abridgment of Communism is enclosed in two primary writings: (1) The Communist Manifesto, which was first published in by Karl Marx, and (2) Principles of Communism, by Friedrich Engels.

Marxism, economic and political philosophy named for Karl is also known as scientific (as opposed to utopian) socialism. Marxism has had a profound impact on contemporary culture; modern communism is based on it, and most modern socialist theories derive from it (see socialism).It has also had tremendous effect on academia, influencing disciplines from economics to philosophy and.

The Communist Manifesto is an interesting book with some profound insights. The Manifesto is a great introduction to the technological view of history, which is what Marx's historical materialism is based on/5(K).

The philosophy of Communism is a timeless evaluation and critique of the philosophy of Marxism and with it, impicitly, a critique of the philosophy of modern Leftwing Liberalism.

While reading this book, one will recognize some of very same Marxist ideas coming from some of our present political candidates and representatives as having their 5/5(2).

1 The fact that a joint composition by Marx and Engels first published only decades after their deaths—The German Ideology—was adopted a few years ago as a set-book for certain British school examinations in Philosophy has to be seen realistically: not as a belated admission of the authors' stature as philosophers comparable with the authors of the other works prescribed—Descartes, Hume.

Plato’s theory of communism is just opposite to Marxian theory of communism that seeks to eventually establish a classless and hence stateless society. The political theory of socialism, which gave rise to ­communism, had been around for hundreds of years by the time a German philosopher named Karl Marx put pen to paper.

Marx, also known as the father of communism, spent most of his life in exile in Great Britain and France. He wrote the Communist Manifesto inwhich later served as the Author: Alia Hoyt.

The best books on Communism recommended by Robert Conquest. Esteemed historian of the Soviet Union recommends five books on Communism, from novels and personal narratives to theoretical works. The Philosophy of Communism is a Catholic refutation of the formal philosophy of ed by Bishop Fulton Sheen, the book seeks to present coherent Catholic answers and counter arguments to each fundamental point of communist theory and practice.

Communism is a socio-economic structure that promotes the establishment of a classless, stateless society based on common ownership of the means of production.

It encourages the formation of a proletarian state in order to overcome the class structures and alienation of labor that characterize capitalistic societies, and their legacy of imperialism and nationalism. This is not a book about Martin Heidegger, () nor is it a study of his written philosophy.

This is instead a collection of previously published APNS editorials examining how otherwise intelligent people and entire educated societies can descend into political madness in the name of nationalism, race and the free-market social order. The above conclusions, with others, were displayed in Macmurray’s book by means of the following structure: The first chapter is devoted to the consideration of the origins of the philosophy of communism, the second to a consideration of the most important characteristics which differentiate it from other philosophical systems.

In A Philosophy for Communism: Rethinking Althusser Panagiotis Sotiris attempts a reading of the work of the French philosopher centered upon his deeply political conception of philosophy.

Althusser’s endeavour is presented as a quest for a new practice of philosophy that would enable a new practice of politics for communism, in opposition to idealism and : Panagiotis Sotiris. Thus, Communism is a distinct socio-political philosophy that is willing to use violent means to attain its goal of a classless society.

If capitalism is defined as a social system based on individual rights (and individual wealth), then communism is its direct opposite. Communism believes in equality through force. The idea behind the book is that one can speak truthfully and poignantly about the political philosophy and economic history of capitalism and Author: Jacob Blumenfeld.

Communism (from the Latin – communis): the direction of social and philosophical thought, a hypothetical model that reflects the everlasting dreams of people about a perfect and fair social and political system; socio-political movement, designed to implement this model in.

Finally is reading philosophy, such as the works of Foucault, Heidegger, and Deleuze, at all relevant to my study of communism. You don't need to read any philosophy to understand communism - not Aristotle, Spinoza, Kant, Hegel or Feuerbach.

Reading Marx is completely sufficient. Communism existed in the Soviet Union until its fall in Today, communism exists in China, Cuba, North Korea, Laos and Vietnam—although in reality, a.

Communism was an economic-political philosophy founded by Karl Marx and Friedrich Engels in the second half of the 19 th century.

Marx and Engels met inand discovered that they had similar principles. In they wrote and published "The Communist Manifesto." They desired to end capitalism feeling that it was the social class system.

Hermeneutic Communism is much more than a beautifully written essay in political philosophy, reaching from ontological premises to concrete political analyses: it provides a coherent communist vision from the standpoint of Heideggerian postmetaphysical hermeneutics.

All those who criticize postmodern 'weak thought' for its inability to ground radical political practice will have to admit. Karl Marx () was a German philosopher, economist, and sociologist whose writings formed the basis of modern communism. (Photo: Ingram Publishing/Newscom).
