Socialism, Utopian and Scientific - Friedrich Engels. III. Publisher's note. Socialism, Utopian and Scientific needs no preface. It ranks with the Communist Manifesto as one of the indispensable books for any one desiring to understand the modern socialist movement.

German philosopher FRIEDRICH ENGELS (18201895), who had coauthored The Communist Manifesto with Karl Marx in 1848, was not pleased, and set out to refute Duehring in a highly charged work 1878 book called Anti-Duehring. In 1880, Engels excerpted three vital chapters from Anti-Duehring, which became this pamphlet, the most popular distillation of Marx and Engels philosophies after the Manifesto itself. This primer on Marxism is an excellent introduction to concepts of socialism from one of its originators.

Friedrich Engels is perhaps best remembered as the confidant, colleague, and benefactor of Karl Marx. Engels was born into a Calvinist family on November 28, 1820

Friedrich Engels (1820-1895) was a German social scientist and philosopher, who developed communist theory alongside his better-known collaborator, Karl Marx. In 1841, he published several articles in the Rheinische Zeitung, where he met Karl Marx for the first time. In 1842, he was sent to Manchester, England to work for the textile firm of Ermen and Engels in which his father was a shareholder. In England, Engels took notes and personally observed the horrible working conditions of English workers which formed the basis for his first book The Condition of the Working Class in England in 1844. From 1845 to 1848, Engels and Marx lived in Brussels, spending much of their time organizing the city's German workers. Shortly after their arrival, they contacted and joined the underground German Communist League and were commissioned by the League to write a pamphlet explaining the principles of communism. This became The Manifesto of the Communist Party (1848), better known as the Communist Manifesto.

WARNING: DO NOT BUY THIS COPY. I ordered this book to read more on Engels' philosophy and, first of all, the publishing is atrocious. Pages are not numbered and the book looks like it was printed on computer paper from Microsoft Word. But here's the kicker: right in the middle of the book is a 12 page fundamentalist and homophobic christian pamphlet titled "The Marriage Bed - Can the Marriage Bed be Defiled?" In this excerpt (which Amazon did manage to number the pages!), the author goes on and on about "fornication", "unnatural acts", and even compares "sodimites" (referring to LGBTQ people) to dogs. Shame on you Amazon. One purchases a book with the reasonable expectation that you are receiving just that product, not an anti-gay pamphlet literally printed within the book. This is doubly offensive because I am a gay man. I will avoid Amazon's in-house publishing from here on out and stick with more reputable publishers.

Engels provides a history of Socialism before Marx explaining the groundwork set out by the likes of Saint Simon & Robert Owen and the push of a more scientific form of socialism spearheaded by Marx. This book is basically a call to us and future generations not to deify Marx & Engels but to learn from them and their predecessors & to look at today in order make a new socialism, one that would benefit our needs and desires & the needs & desires of nature.

This little book is the most concise summary of the ideas of Socialism that I have found so far. Engels does a brilliant job in laying out an outline of the evolution of capitalism from feudalism through the guild system to the industrial revolution. He also describes the evolution of thought as practiced by the Ancient Greeks into the dialectic of Hegel, which made thinking about processes and change possible and, consequently, the evolution of Socialist theory.

The burning question in my mind with regard to Socialist theory has been, "How exactly will social ownership and control of the means of production create a fairer distribution of wealth and capital?" Unfortunately, this question remains unanswered. Control of capital cannot in and of itself provide the knowledge of the behavior of markets necessary to predict and control them for the good of all. The recent failure of the Federal Reserve and other worldwide central banking, using interest rates, to control the inevitable boom-and-bust economic cycles points up this flaw in capitalism, and no Socialist answer appears in this book either.

The book also provides informative insight into what socialism really is. I highly recommend this to anybody with a philosophical mind!
It will only strengthen your knowledge of the human condition, and broaden your understanding of Social democracy.

Truth up in this book
I've never read much of Engels, which is unfortunate. However, this is a very concise synopsis of the views of Marx and Engels in relation to what they saw as a sort of bourgeois deviation from science in socialism (scientific socialism in general).

If you're interested in getting a more mature exposition from one of the founding fathers of scientific socialism... on scientific socialism, then this is the book for you. It's very easy to read and grasp and is around 80 or so pages.
