Young Marx, new political theory

Pogrebinschi, Thamy


The aim of this article is to focus on Marx’s political theory as announced in his Critique of Hegel’s Philosophy of Right, from 1843. To reclaim young Marx means first and foremost to recover the essence of his political thought, which formed the ontological and epistemological basis for his subsequent work. My argument in this sense is that to recover the true statute of the political as announced by Marx in his 1843 manuscript allows laying the foundations for a new way of conducting political theory, particularly normative political theory.
