Karl Marx : the red Prussian / by Leopold Schwarzschild. – Version details – Trove
Schwarzschild did not know, for example, and Flew does not mention, that Frederick, the illegitimate son of Marx’s servant, Helene Delmuth, was Marx’s own boy. Kolakowski sees classical Marxism as a powerful blend of theory and vision in which broadly true propositions — that wealth is a source of class and power, that particular modes of production largely shape mental life, and that mental life is often subverted by ideology — are ferociously systematised within a false, discredited philosophy of history.
He actually spent more time writing polemics, and assassinating the characters of his erstwhile comrades. Leopold Schwarzschild’s The Red Prussian is just such a challenge, just such an exposition.

His and Engels’ predictions about the coming economic crisis that would finally bring about the dissolution of capitalism were proved schwafzschild again, and again. Popper did not revise his high regard for Marx’s science, however, and his favourable notice did not rescue The Red Prussian from its gathering obscurity.
He had more of a sense of humor than Marx, who would take a joke that Engels tossed off and spin it out into a lengthy, labored treatise. Eventually, he gave up this idea, and the more successful members of the Young Hegelians were able to convince him to finally finish his doctoral dissertation: The details of Marx’s life and an overview of his work is provided.
