The Rise of Global Prophets and Philosophers: Alternative Visions to Secular Modernity
Your task is to choose an individual or group from the list noted below, and present an argument as to how they would have viewed the ideas found in the Communist Manifesto – simply put, would they have agreed or disagreed with Marx and Engels’ ideology? Include a quote or set of quotes from the Manifesto to support your thoughts. For example, perhaps consider a most famous statement, “The history of all hitherto existing society is the history of class struggle” (Marx 1959, 7) and relate same to a French revolutionary in the late 18th century.
And remember, that the Manifesto was no mere philosophical theory rather it was a call for political action. Several websites are noted for key individuals, yet feel free to further explore these men, women, and groups, providing links via the use of citations at the end of your post.
