Marx's Attempt to Leave Philosophy

Introduction
1.
There has recently been a spate of work in English on the Young Hegehans, primarily by intellectual historians. For readers interested in an overview of the Young Hegehans, the best account is John Toews, Hegelianism ( Cambridge: Cambridge University Press, 1980). Robert Gascoigne, Religion, Rationality, and Community (Dordrecht: Martinus Nijhoff Publishers, 1985), and Harold Mah, The End of Philosophy, the Origin of "Ideology" ( Berkeley: University of California Press, 1987), are also useful, as is William Brazill, The Young Hegelians ( New Haven, Conn.: Yale University Press, 1970), and Leszek Kolakowski, Main Currents of Marxism, trans. R S. Falla ( Oxford: Oxford University Press, 1978), vol. 1. David McLellan , The Young Hegelians and Karl Marx ( London: MacMillan, 1969), remains the best work on the topic by a historian of philosophy. The only full-length treatment on Bauer yet in English is Zvi Rosen, Bruno Bauer and Karl Marx ( The Hague: Martinus Nijhoff, 1977). Philosophical accounts of Feuerbach] are Eugene Kamenka , The Philosophy of Ludwig Feuerbach ( London: Routledge & Kegan Paul, 1970), and Marx Wartofsky, Feuerbach ( Cambridge: Cambridge University Press, 1977). The latter is the more scholarly, and while Wartofsky casts Feuerbach too much as Marx's precursor, it is the best work on Feuerbach to date. Perhaps most important, there is now an English collection of Young Hegelian writings; Lawrence Stepelevich, ed., The Young Hegelians ( Cambridge: Cambridge University Press, 1983).

I should say something in particular about how my work differs from Harold Mah's The End of Philosophy and the Origins of "Ideology." I read Mah's work only after drafting this book. I discovered that he had anticipated some of my themes. Mah's focus on Marx's attempt to leave philosophy and the link of this attempt to some conception of socially induced illusion is similar to mine. Mah, like Toews, notes the conversion element in these writers grappling with Hegel's thought; he notes
