Preface to the 1883 German Edition Summary and Analysis

This brief preface announces the 1883 death of Marx. Engels bluntly states the dominant theory found in the document was the product of Marx's philosophy and thought. Although both men had envisioned a similar process, Marx was the moving force behind the Communist manifesto and Marx's philosophy was much in advance of Engels'. The preface contains an interesting and prescient footnote wherein Engels recounts his opinion that the document had done for history what—at that time—Darwin's theory had done for science. The preface is signed by Engels.
