Marx’s Concept of Political Liberation of Man

  • Radoslav Selucký


Contrary to the widespread belief that Marx’s political theory is just a reflection of his economic theory, it combines at least three basic approaches to politics: economic, sociological and political. Marx’s economic approach to politics consists in his famous concept of base and superstructure, the base being the economic structure of society and the superstructure being an ensemble of politics, law, ideology, culture, etc. Marx’s sociological approach to politics is based on his concept of the social division of labour and of classes. And finally, Marx’s political approach to politics stems from his concept of politics as the power reflecting and regulating conflicts in civil society.
