BIOGRAPHY

Karl Marx was bornon 5 May 1818 in Trier, German, Prussian, is Economist, Philosopher. Karl Marx was a 19th century philosopher, political economist and revolutionary, who gave socialism a scientific foundation. Marx was devoted to the study of philosophy and history from a young age and was about to become an assistant professor in philosophy before his life took a different direction and he became a revolutionary. From a very young age, he started participating in a number of political activities and addressed a wide variety of social concerns. He is known for, among other things, his analysis of history and his arguments for a logical understanding of socioeconomic amendment through radical action. While Marx was a relatively undistinguished figure in his lifetime, his philosophies, which later came to be known as ‘Marxism’, began to wield a major impact on workers’ movements shortly after his death. The revolution which he instigated reached its apex when the Marxist Bolsheviks emerged victorious during the Russian October Revolution and soon different theoretical variants of communism began branching out from ‘Marxism’ such as Stalinism, Trotskyism and Leninism. Some of his most famous works like ‘The Communist Manifesto’ and ‘Das Kapital’ had great influence on political leaders like Vladimir Lenin, Mao Zedong and Leon Trotsky.
