Global Problems of Modern Times and the Methodology of K. Marx - Part one

Ilia Balabanov

Economic Thought journal, 2008, issue 5, 3-34

Abstract: In the contemporary scientific and socio-political space the works of K. Marks are in total oblivion. Even more, during the whole 20th century in the Western countries, and lately in the Eastern ones, he is anathematized politically and scientifically as an evil spirit. And still - is the scientific heritage of Marks actual and useful in the contemporary realities? Stating such a question in public today sounds almost like a provocation. Science, though, has its own rules, which define its moral. The paper is an attempt, firstly, to show, that despite the fact that it looks paradoxically at first, the theory of Marks is not only actual, but in the new realities will become even more actual. Secondly, the paper gives arguments for the fact that the intransient significance of Marks' ideology more adequately identifies and meets the global challenges, which the whole humankind has faced and still faces. Because of the publication of the study in two parts the relation between global problems and K. Marks’ methodology is elaborated in more detail in Part two.
