Herrn Eugen Dührings Umwälzung der Wissenschaft E–pub/E–book
St philosophy historical analysis and conomics Anti Duhring is the source of a classic introductory text in the study of Marxism Socialism Utopian and Scientific which is a great place to start But with fundamental concepts firmly in hand Anti Duhring is one of those classics that with patience and attention delivers again and again to the students of Marxism fortifying their theoretical knowledge and preparing them for the struggleBoth texts can be found onlinehttpswwwmarxistsorgarchivemarxhttpswwwmarxistsorgarchivemarx A very dry but witty take on Herr D hring an idealist philosopher who claimed to have the absolute socialist future ready made for the world Engels dispels all idealistic notions in this book providing a foundation of understanding dialectics and historical Imaginary Runner economic materialism and how we should view the world from a purely materialist view 3 stars because Engels though funny is dry and long winded This is what makes him both a great teacher and an unbearable one If you are struggling in how to conceptualize dialectic thought and argument read this book but be prepared to take breaks as his constant but necessary uoting of Herr D hring getsxhausted as Mr D hring was a complete fool who fancied himself the From Cottage to Bungalow: Houses and the Working Class in Metropolitan Chicago, 1869-1929 end all of theory with his ornate sentences Seriously you will roll youryes many times Damn how will D hring Fresh Water ever get back from this This bookstablishes the fact that Herr Eugen D hring is a pseudophilosophical idiot The whole of Engels book is dedicated to proving
Exactly Why D Hring why D hring ideas are wrong At least that may have been the point but the fact that Anti D hring is still read by Marxists today highlights the importance of what Engels wrote The French Daguerreotypes enduring ideas are not necessarily the reasons why D hring was wrong but Engels answer to them In this book the author clarifies andxpands on many points laid out in the life of Marx and Engels one of the most significant being that this book contains the material xtracted to Socialism Scientific Utopian The book does tend to be uite dry and uote heavy although I found the 1800 s style literary bitchslaps uite ntertaining It is however From the Enemy's Point of View: Humanity and Divinity in an Amazonian Society essential reading material for serious Marxists presenting the materialist view of socialism rather than a utopian one This is uite a dense book that reuires your full attention but is certainly worth it Engels completely wipes the floor with his opponent Herr Duhring and isven able to insert his typical jokes and disses after demolishing the arguments of his opponent In this work Engels covers Marxist theory historical materialism political Doris Salcedo economy and scientific socialism Hexplains the historical development that Twelve Days of Pleasure eventually gave birth to the capitalist mode of production its inherent contradictions and how it is developing within itself thembryo of a higher mode of production which it will Gods Choice eventually give birth to out of historical necessity Since the productive forces are in contradiction with the current mode of production and its social relationst If you want THE Marxist book then this is it It s uote heavy and D hring s absurd views can disrupt the flow of the book but so long as you read carefully and pay close attention to what Engels says because he often summarizes what D hring is saying then you ll come out ok The chapters on dialectics are surprisingly asy but I need to add a caveat When I first read this book and these chapters in particular I had no idea what was happening After reading Mao s On Practice and On Contradiction Stalin s Dialectical and Historical Materialism as
well as Lenin s biography of Marx I returned to these chapters and it made complete sense as Lenin s biography of Marx I returned to these chapters and it made complete sense for the chemistry xample I m not a chemist so I was rather confused here so I skimmed it and got on just fine To finish this off I love this book If I was trapped on a desert island then this is the book that I m taking socialism is when you have professional wheelers duhring. Oach on neighboring territory territory on which his knowledge is therefore as Herr Virchow has admit ted just as superficial as any of ours I hope that in respect of minor inexactitudes and clumsinesses of Grand Illusion: The Third Reich, the Paris Exposition, and the Cultural Seduction of France expression I shall be granted the same indulgence as is shown toach other by writers in this domain. .
This book originally was a collection of newspaper articles by F Engels against the somewhat

Excerpt from the original bookIt was not my fault that I had to follow Herr Duhring into realms where at best I can only claim to be a dilettante In such cases I have for the most part limited myself to putting forward the correct uncontested facts in Opposition to my adversary's false or distorted assertio. E to the pressure But then that was only relative to what we had observed about materiality and scientist found many border cases which became and over time and had to correct these laws and add new ones to xplain them Anexample of Relativity between our material ideas and material reality You re so goes on about how uantity turns into uality is reflected in water turning from a liuid to a gas are you in the uantity or temperatureenergy added to the liuid pictures has a ualitative change in state of matter turning the water into gasThe unity of opposites which comes down
to basically the fact that nothing is absolute when someone says yes orbasically the fact that nothing is absolute when someone says yes or they re saying yes or no relative to something lse One might say that night and dark are opposite yet we know materiality that the fact that humans can t see the rest of the Aramaic Bowl Spells: Jewish Babylonian Aramaic Bowls Volume One electromagnetic spectrum and can only see the visible light is a reflection of the relativity of this dark and light they have a sort of Unity and are not absolutely separate poles The relative to are sensors they seem to beAnother thing is the antithesis thesis turns into a synthesis This is reflected in material reality see forxample all the theoreticians of all forms of socialism Xenophon And His World (Historia Einzelschriften) eventually and I think it is thisxample the book Theses socialisms came into contact with Geography of the Gaze: Urban and Rural Vision in Early Modern Europe each other via human beings interacting and being influenced by them and implement practical reality This basically grinded down the socialisms into only the onse that were the most correct and scientific remained Hence one school the socialism thesis came into another contact with another school antithesis from that conflict the best ideas from both of these socialist theories are synthesized into a better Theory or possibly worse taking the best or worse from world sThis leads to the contradictions of reality and then resolvingach other Which you can work out from the rest of the other principles how this is the right what should be taken to account that all these principles are interacting with one another Giving rise to the dialectical phenomenological principles which can be used idealistically like in hegel s dialectics or if you abuse dialectics by using them overabstractly and forgetting about the materialism which many communist do today Unified in basically dialectical principles being derived from Materialist philosophy and being summarised in dialectical materialism a accurate scientific philosophical viewpoint Anti D hring Herr Eugen D hring s Revolution in Science by Frederick Engels A Review Beware of Groove: An Aesthetic of Measured Time egomaniacs with a scheme to change the world might be a moral one could take from this book But the relevance of Anti Duhring goes far deeper than mere fortune cookie wisdom In it Frederick Engelsxposes a charlatan for the reactionary he is and in the process One Wild Weekend elaborates the fundamental aspects of MarxismIt is not a good place to start learning about scientific socialism though Besides having to adapt as a 21st century reader to 19th century language the scope of Engels knowledge in history science andconomics is dazzling making his claim to be a dilettante in these subjects somewhat disingenuous This is not just academic jousting however but a literary manifestation of the struggle for ideas in the German labour movement of the late 19th century a vital moment in the history of working class struggle It can be asy to miss the wood for the trees in this book
with a in Marxism to act as a compass this book is full of invaluable lessonsAnd that is where the use value of this work lay Not necessarily in the detail of Engel s criticism but in fundamental criticisms of Duhring s project that the detail supports Written with Engel s readable style and devastating wit dismantling Duhring provides the student of Marxism with as Engels describes in the 1885 preface positive conceptions developed alongside the polemic that will help deepen one s understanding of Marxi.
