Linkdump from Karl Marx[edit]

The following were taken from the "See also" section of the Marx article, and may be appropriate candidates for inclusion here:

Talk: Dialectical Materialism and Dialectical Logic[edit]

I have removed these sections from the philosophy sections as neither concept is present in the oeuvre of Marx and Engels, and both are expounded upon on the Philosophy in the Soviet Union page, which is linked in the history section. RnRa76 (talk) 01:48, 7 September 2018 (UTC)Reply[reply]

I have added these sections to Template:Marxism-Leninism, which I feel is a more appropriate home. RnRa76 (talk) 03:29, 20 October 2018 (UTC)Reply[reply]


this whole sidebar needs updating. for example, in the works section, there is only the works of marx and engels. it is generally agreed upon by marxists that this is not all of marxist canon. lenin, gramsci, althusser, benjamin, mao, adorno, among others all have classic works whihc should be included here. furthermore, the people section is lacking. in addition, the ideologies section is bloated. marxism has many varieties but to imply that every marxist leader has its own theoretical tradition is poor and clogs up the page. a re do is in order!

Unexplained overhaul[edit]

@, you both removed massive amounts of important pages (like dialectical materialism, Stalinism, Frankfurt School, Theses on Feuerbach) as well as adding tons of obscure books and people. It doesn't seem to be done in any sort of systematic way. Could you give an explanation? BappleBusiness[talk] 19:14, 7 April 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]


I have overhauled the list of ideologies and theorists. The theorists are organised chronologically, and are people who are deemed to have contributed significantly to Marxist theory. The ideology section has been reorganised into Hegelian and non Hegelian, and both. Organised alphabetically and includes all major schools of Marxist thought. Those which are uncommon are in a separate area. I believe this is much better but to prevent an edit war I am explaining the overhaul and the reasons why. The main reason is that a lot of stuff was missing and the list had an anti Marxist slant in my opinion (including pol pot for example is just ridiculous and provocative). I have not removed Stalinism either, contrary to claims Sporadicmonk03 (talk) 10:26, 9 December 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

@Sporadicmonk03: first and foremost, stop removing other editors' posts from talk pages other than your own! Use edit summaries and explain each edit individually. You explained neither any removal nor addition of content. Articles such as Wage Labour and Capital, Imperialism, the Highest Stage of Capitalism, A Contribution to the Critique of Political Economy, and The German Ideology are being removed from the Theoretical works section in favor of articles such as Ways of Seeing and The Age of Extremes; are the former not important to the Marxist theory while the latter are? Marxist schools of thought are being divided according to their 'commonness' decided purely by this editor. There may be some merit in reorganization you put forward, but it should be proposed here on the talk page, fully explained, agreed upon and only then applied to the template, not forced through edit-warring. –Vipz (talk) 08:08, 13 December 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Fair enough. My ordering of ‘commonness’ is not massively different to how it already was. I removed theoretical works that are not seen as in themselves particularly important to marxologists Sporadicmonk03 (talk) 19:38, 13 December 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
