12 Reviews
Grundrisse occupies a pivotal place in Marx's career, it also offers a unique picture of his methods of work. The work consists of seven notebooks on capital and on money. Drafted during the winter of 1857-8, Marx first explored the themes and thesis that dominate his later writings. It is here that Marx sets out his own version of Hegel's Dialectics, developed his mature views on labour, surplus value and profit and offered many fresh insights into alienation, automation, the restrictions of personality and recurrent economic crises produced by capitalism.

Review: Grundrisse: Foundations of the Critique of Political Economy

User Review  - Rudy - Goodreads

Economics related parts embrassingly trite. Some rather interesting sociological insights. Mostly biased critiques of Smith and Ricardo appear. Read full review

About the author (1993)

Karl Marx (1818-1883). The core of Marx's economic analysis found early expression in the Ökonomisch-philosophische Manuskripte aus dem Jahre 1844 (Economic and Political Manuscripts of 1844) (1844). There, Marx argued that the conditions of modern industrial societies invariably result in the estrangement (or alienation) of workers from their own labor. In his review of a Bruno Baier book, On the Jewish Question (1844), Marx decried the lingering influence of religion over politics and proposed a revolutionary re-structuring of European society. Much later, Marx undertook a systematic explanation of his economic theories in Das Kapital (Capital) (1867-95) and Theorien über den Mehrwert (Theory of Surplus Value) (1862).
