The repeated use of the term 'individuals' should really be avoided if possible for Marx. Does he begin with 'the individual'? No.

Some summary of the arguments of the book would be nice. --Zslevi (talk) 00:19, 12 May 2008 (UTC)


Perhaps we could mention Marx not wanting to publish the GI

Marcello Musto in 'Marx for Today' (edited by Musto) writes 'once Marx had abandoned the idea of publishing the GI, he returned to the theory of aleiantion in Wage Labour and Capital' p.108 — Preceding unsigned comment added by 24.84.68.252 (talk) 07:25, 25 April 2013 (UTC)

Is 'abandoning the idea' the same as 'not wanting to publish it' - I don't think so. Possibly even the reverse. Ninjabeard (talk) 11:54, 2 January 2014 (UTC)

Semi-protected edit request on 27 October 2014[edit]

Change 'The German Ideology (German: Die Deutsche Ideologie) is a book written by Karl Marx and Friedrich Engels around April or early May 1846.' to The German Ideology (German: Die Deutsche Ideologie) is a set of manuscripts written by Karl Marx and Friedrich Engels around April or early May 1846.

This better reflects current scholarly opinion that 'The German Ideology' is not a book, but rather a jumble of writings that later editors tried to turn into a book.
