Anti-Dühring


Anti-Dühring

"Herrn Eugen Dührings Umwälzung der Wissenschaft", commonly known as "Anti-Dühring", is a book written in German by Friedrich Engels, published in 1878. It had previously been serialised in a periodical. There were two further editions in German in the lifetime of Engels. It was first published in English translation in 1907.

This work was Engels's major contribution to the exposition and development of Marxist theory. Its full title translates as "Herr Eugen Dühring's Revolution in Science": this is meant ironically and polemically. The short title recalls Julius Caesar's polemic "Anti-Cato".

Eugen Dühring had produced his own version of socialism, intended as a replacement for Marxism. Since Karl Marx was busy at the time with writing"Das Kapital", it was left to Engels to write a general defence. The sections are "Philosophy", "Political Economy" and "Socialism".

It is a popular and enduring work which, as Engels wrote to Marx, was an attempt "to produce an encyclopaedic survey of our conception of the philosophical, natural-science and historical problems."

Part of it was published separately in 1880 as "". [Tucker, Robert C. "Introduction" in The Marx-Engels Reader, Second Edition. New York: W. W. Norton & Company, 1978, p. xxxviii.]
