This introduction to Marxist philosophy is
conceived as a brief reference work for students. First, it
explains the principal theories of Marx: his conception of
political economy, class theory, historical materialism and
notions on base and superstructure. The application of
Marxist philosophy in social sciences is expounded using the
example of Marxist art history. Conceived for a new
generation, the text has deliberately been written in a very
short, straightforward form.

Boris Röhrl is professor of art history at
RheinMain University of Applied Sciences Wiesbaden near
Frankfurt on Main (Germany). His special fields of research
are realism in visual arts and the art of the Renaissance.
