The author shows that Marx saw himself as the creator of a science of history rather than a philosopher, economist, or sociologist. He elucidates Marx’s method as a fusion of logical and historical analysis. He explains Marx’s concepts of practice and social being, alienation and freedom, and social and socioeconomic formation. Finally, he discusses Marx’s ideas about free and labor time.
