Karl Marx ( 1818 - 1883 )  Category ( Philosophers ) [suggest a correction]

Karl Marx was born into a large family in the Kingdom of Prussia. His family was Jewish but his father had decided to convert to Christianity. Eventually, his father was a practicing Lutheran finding the religion more widely accepted in an area where Roman Catholics dominated.

Karl Marx was primarily educated from home before going to the University of Bonn in 1835. There, he studied law but his grades weren't very good. Since his grades weren't what his father had expected or wanted for his son, Karl was forced to transfer to a highly regarded Berlin university. During his time at Friedrich-Wilhelms University, Marx wrote several works of poetry. Karl Marx's Deity was a work that would later be widely recognized.

Marx earned his doctorate in 1841 and discovered that his work and his philosophical beliefs would be viewed with controversy. Soon after he completed his educational studies, Marx joined a group of other philosophers to pursue his theories and his research into social issues.

Karl Marx wrote the 1848 Communist Manifesto. The work raised eyebrows and Marx began to theorize about his beliefs in class struggles. A scholar, Marx would become more widely known as the "Father of Communism." His work that focused primarily on his viewpoints about human nature would go on to be studied long after his passing in 1883.
