Marx and Engels and the 'Red Chemist': The Forgotten Legacy of Carl Schorlemmer

  • Ian Angus
Keywords: Marxist Ecology, Ecology, History

Abstract

Most accounts of Marx and Engels's lives, if they mention Carl Schorlemmer (1834–92) at all, refer to the renowned chemist only as a friend, without acknowledging his influence on their studies of the natural sciences. It is time to restore this neglected figure to his rightful place in the Marxian—and Engelsian—tradition.
