In 1818, Karl Marx, descended from a long line of rabbis, was born in Prussian Rhineland. Marxs father converted to Protestantism shortly before Karls birth. Educated at the Universities of Bonn, Jena, and Berlin, Marx founded the Socialist newspaper Vorwarts in 1844 in Paris. After being expelled from France at the urging of the Prussian government, which “banished” Marx in absentia, Marx studied economics in Brussels. He and > founded the Communist League in 1847 and published the Communist Manifesto. After the failed revolution of 1848 in Germany, in which Marx participated, he eventually wound up in London. Marx worked as foreign correspondent for several U.S. publications. His Das Kapital came out in three volumes (1867, 1885 and 1894). Marx organized the International and helped found the Social Democratic Party of Germany. Although Marx was not religious, > later remarked, “His belief that there is a cosmic force called Dialectical Materialism which governs human history independently of human volitions, is mere mythology” (Portraits from Memory, 1956). Marx once quipped, “All I know is that I am not a Marxist” (according to Engels in a letter to C. Schmidt; see Whos Who in Hell by Warren Allen Smith). D. 1883.

Marx was also engaged in writing his doctoral thesis, The Difference Between the > and > Philosophy of Nature, which he completed in 1841. It was described as “a daring and original piece of work in which Marx set out to show that theology must yield to the superior wisdom of philosophy”: the essay was controversial, particularly among the conservative professors at the University of Berlin. Marx decided, instead, to submit his thesis to the more liberal University of Jena, whose faculty awarded him his PhD in April 1841. As Marx and > were both atheists, in March 1841 they began plans for a journal entitled Archiv des Atheismus (Atheistic Archives), but it never came to fruition.
