May 2018: 200 Years since the Birth of Karl Marx.
Karl Marx (5 May 1818 – 14 March 1883) German philosopher, economist, historian, political theorist, sociologist, journalist and revolutionary socialist.
As an adult, Marx became stateless and spent much of his life in London, where published various works in collaboration with German thinker Friedrich Engels. His two most well-known works are the 1848 pamphlet The Communist Manifesto and the three-volume Das Kapital.
From an academic perspective, Marx's work contributed to the birth of modern sociology. He has been cited as one of the nineteenth century's three masters of the "school of suspicion" alongside Friedrich Nietzsche and Sigmund Freud and as one of the three principal architects of modern social science along with Émile Durkheim and Max Weber.
