The Communist Manifesto

by Karl Marx And Friedrich Engels

The communist manifesto has been recognized as one of the most influential political manuscripts in the world. It presents an analytical approach to the class struggle (historical and present) and the problems of capitalism, rather than a prediction of the potential future forms of communism. The book contains the theories of Marx and Engels on the nature of society and politics, which in its own words: “The history of all society so far exists is the story of class struggles”. It also briefly presents its ideas for how the capitalist society of the time would eventually be replaced by socialism and, finally, by communism.

History of American Socialism


The book introduces the study of socialism as a phenomenon and socialist movements in America during the nineteenth century.


Goethe and Steiner as Pioneers of Emergence (Anthroposophical Studies Book 8)

by Frederick Amrine

Johann Wolfgang von Goethe and Rudolf Steiner are shown to be the great pioneers of what today is called “emergence.” Parallels with the great Danish semiotician Jesper Hoffmeyer are especially striking. We see all three figures working towards a non-Darwinian biology of freedom. The essay focuses of Steiner’s first published ms., CW2; Goethe’s Theory of Knowledge, in which Steiner supplies the epistemology that had been missing from Goethe’s alternative science. Thus Steiner views Goethe as “the Copernicus and Kepler of the organic world.”
