Most of this essay has focused on Marx’s mature work, though I have also referred to the continuities and discontinuities between the early and the later works, as well as between young Marx’s writings and Hegel’s. Some of these continuities are extremely important. Let us take, for instance, Marx’s early comments on the internal structure of the bureaucracy. By contrasting an ‘apparent’ structure made up of co-operation and professional skill with a ‘real’ one made up of internal fights and incompetence, Marx does not simply point out a distinction between a ‘formal’ organisation and an ‘informal’ one, side by side. He makes, in fact, two more general and different points.
