The Alienation Of Humankind, In The Fundamental Sense Of The Term, Means The Loss Of Control: Its Embodiment In An Alien Force Which Confronts The Individuals As A Hostile And Potentially Destructive Power. When Marx Analysed Alienation In His Economic And Philosophic Manuscripts Of 1844, He Indicated Four Principal Aspects Of It The Alienation Of Human Beings From: (1) Nature; (2) Their Own Productive Activity; (3) Their Species Being , As Members Of The Human Species; And (4) Each Other.He Forcefully Underlined That All This Is Not Some Fatality Of Nature As Indeed The Structural Antagonisms Of Capital Are Characteristically Misrepresented, So As To Leave Them In Their Place But A Form Of Self-Alienation.In Other Words, Not The Deed Of An All-Powerful Outside Agency, Natural Or Metaphysical, But The Outcome Of A Determinate Type Of Historical Development Which Can Be Positively Altered By A Conscious Intervention In The Historical Process, In Order To Transcend Labour S Self-Alienation .From The Preface To This Fifth Edition

The Theory of Need in Marx

The first full presentation of a fundamental aspect of Marx, the concept of need What are needs?

The first full presentation of a fundamental aspect of Marx, the concept of need What are needs? While the edifices of economic theory are built upon various mechanisms designed to satisfy “human needs,” not many economists have addressed the idea of need itself. Heller’s highly original work identifies this lacuna, recognizing the concept of needs as playing a “hidden but principal role in Marx’s economic categories.” Her writing lucidly exposes radical needs as bearing the seeds of revolutionary agency in alienated capitalist society, and reasserts our existence as sentient beings beyond the realm of the material, productive spheres.

In this thesis the author develops an account of Marx's concept of "freedom" through its relation to other key concepts in Marx's work. First, Marx's understanding of "freedom" is distinguished from historical liberal conceptions of freedom, or "liberty," and it is shown that Marx has a concrete understanding of freedom. This leads to a close analysis of Marx's concept of freedom primarily through two texts, the Economic and Philosophic Manuscripts of 1844, and the later Grundrisse. Although in both dimensions of the problem the author utilizes the relation of the concept of "freedom"' to the concepts of "alienation"-- which gives aspects of freedom through its obverse relation to freedom, and "human essence"--which underlies both concepts but is given through them as well, the problem is developed differently in each due to the orientation of each text. The author developes further aspects of Marx's understanding of "freedom" through an analysis of Marx's account of capitalism and exchange value. After having developed an account of Marx's concept of "freedom," further avenues are explored for developing a viable Marxism and the grounds of possibility for the realization of freedom.
