    For Marx consists of seven distinct essays. I have not, however, prepared them as separate files. Rather, your choices are limited to downloading each of the two parts (of equal size, 345k) into which I have grouped the texts or you may download the larger single file containing the entire contents (649k). The English translation of For Marx included a "Glossary" and this has been included in each of the two parts. Below is the complete table of contents.



 

These pages are dedicated
to the memory of Jacques Martin,
the friend
who, in the most terrible ordeal,
alone
discovered the road to
Marx's philosophy
- and guided me onto it.
