Title: The Marxist Rhetoric- On the Relationship of Practice and Theory
Creators: Hamilton, Richard
Keywords: political ideology
Karl Marx
Marxism
Issue Date: 2007
Abstract: The success of the Marxist doctrine poses an important problem: Given the failure of its major propositions, the persistence of capitalism, and the absence of workingclass revolutions in capitalist countries, how did Marxism gain such wide influence? In this project, Hamilton sets out to answer this question by considering three things. First, he assesses the major propositions of Karl Marx and Frederick Engels. Second, he reviews Marx and Engels’ political activities to test their arguments about theory and practice. Finally, he examines subsequent analyses of Marx and Engels’ work.
