Download e-book for iPad: A Failed Parricide: Hegel and the Young Marx by Roberto Finelli, Peter D Thomas

By Roberto Finelli, Peter D Thomas

In line with a longtime interpretation, the transition from Hegel’s materialism to Marx’s materialism indicates a revolutionary improvement from an abstract-idealist idea of changing into, to a idea of the concrete activities of humans inside of historical past. A Failed Parricide by way of Roberto Finelli deals an leading edge studying of the Marx-Hegel dating, arguing that the younger Marx remained structurally subaltern to Hegel’s special notion of the topic that turns into itself relating to alterity. Marx’s early critique of Hegel is represented as a ‘failed parricide’, depending upon an organicist and spiritualist anthropology derived from Feuerbach’s presumed materialism. in simple terms in Marx’s mature critique of political financial system will he be capable to go back to this ‘primal scene’ and bring a particular idea of the position of formal determinations in social and political modernity.

The most true and profound sense of this contradiction is that between the founding principle of abstract, individual self-consciousness and its concrete and sensible existence. 36 What is derived from reflecting on the contradiction inherent to the atom between its essence and existence is that the result of a subjectivity that claims to find the basis of its identity in nothing other than its own self-consciousness is the dramatic negation of itself, its own dissolution and the impossibility of coinciding with any kind of determinate and concrete figure of its existence.
