Chapter Summary

In light of the persistence of capitalism, the present work is intended to help the social sciences and philosophy adopt a more relaxed attitude to Marx, who has developed what remains the most stringent theory of capitalism. This theory has however been so strongly distorted in the course of its political and academic reception history that it needs first to be freed of these superimpositions. This chapter explores the concept of philosophy that is not only compatible with the critique practised in this work, but has in fact guided it. To begin with, the author specifies once more the proposed criterion for the critique of philosophy that the early Marx developed for the purposes of his engagement with Hegel and Feuerbach. He then proposes this kind of 'perspicuous presentation' for different variants of social philosophy.
