A Socialist History Of The French Revolution
Ernest Belfort Bax (23 July 1854 - 26 November 1926) was a British socialist, journalist and philosopher. Born into a nonconformist religious family in Leamington, he was first introduced to Marxism while studying philosophy in Germany. He combined Karl Marx's ideas with those of Immanuel Kant, Arthur Schopenhauer and Eduard von Hartmann. Keen to explore possible metaphysical and ethical implications of socialism, he came to describe a "religion of socialism" as a means to overcome the dichotomy between the personal and the social, and also that between the cognitive and the emotional.
Origins of the French Revolution Standing outside the revisionist and postmodernist tide, noted professors explore the changing intellectual and cultural discourses of the late 18th century in the latest volume of this compelling series. The essays analyze a wide range of subjects, including the rise of the bourgeoisie, the arguments over the French state's progressive function, the reality of social conflict, and the revolutiona.
An internationalist and an advocate for peace, Jean Jaurès, the leader of the Socialist Party in France, was assassinated in July 1914. He was also a leading exponent of Marxist historiography and his groundbreaking History of the French Revolution, published in four volumes in 1901-4, is both a great work of literature and a landmark in the study of the Revolution.
