Human Being, Work and Alienation. Karl Marx’s Economic and Philosophical Manuscripts 1844

In this article the main focus is on the Karl Marx’s Economic and Philosophical Manuscripts from the year 1844. The main theme of the article is the articulation of alienation and the human nature that Marx develops in Manuscripts and also other texts around it. To be able to undestand fully Marx’s theory of alienation and human nature I will illuminate it from two aspects. One is contextual in nature where I will set Marx ideas in the context of socialist theory of the time, especially the work of Moses Hess. The other is theoretical in nature where I will read Marx from the viewpoint of G. W. F. Hegel’s ideas concerning work and Ludwig Feuerbach’s theory of human nature. Obviously these two aspects are overlapping.
