Long available to the readers of Soviet Russia, here is the first English translation, in book form, of the unexpurgated papers of Karl Marx on the so-called “Jewish question.” Most of Marx’s anti-Semitic diatribes were carefully eliminated by the translators and editors of his books, his journalistic writings and his correspondence. Readers unfamiliar with this aspect of his thought will be startled to discover how well it has served the purposes of the totalitarian regimes of our time. It is consequently a subject upon which every member of a free society should be adequately informed. A fearless and illuminating critical introduction to this remarkable work has been provided by the eminent philosopher, Dagobert D. Runes. Extensive comments and critical annotations related to the material appear throughout the book.

A World Without Jews by Karl Marx speaks about religious prejudice specifically against Jews. It begs to question can the world survive without this prejudice and how Jews beg for political emancipation? Karl Marx (1818-1883) is best known not as a philosopher but as a revolutionary communist, whose works inspired the foundation of many communist regimes in the twentieth century. It is hard to think of many who have had as much influence in the creation of the modern world. Trained as a philosopher, Marx turned away from philosophy in his mid-twenties, towards economics and politics. However, in addition to his overtly philosophical early work, his later writings have many points of contact with contemporary philosophical debates, especially in the philosophy of history and the social sciences, and in moral and political philosophy. Historical materialism -- Marx's theory of history -- is centered around the idea that forms of society rise and fall as they further and then impede the development of human productive power. Marx sees the historical process as proceeding through a necessary series of modes of production, culminating in communism. Marx's economic analysis of capitalism is based on his version of the labour theory of value, and includes the analysis of capitalist profit as the extraction of surplus value from the exploited proletariat. The analysis of history and economics come together in Marx's prediction of the inevitable economic breakdown of capitalism, to be replaced by communism. However Marx refused to speculate in detail about the nature of communism, arguing that it would arise through historical processes, and was not the realisation of a pre-determined moral ideal.

Alon Confino seeks to rethink dominant interpretations of the Holocaust by examining it as a problem in cultural history. As the main research interests of Holocaust scholars are frequently covered terrain – the anti-Semitic ideological campaign, the machinery of killing, the brutal massacres during the war – Confino's research goes in a new direction. He analyzes the culture and sensibilities that made it possible for the Nazis and other Germans to imagine the making of a world without Jews. Confino seeks these insights from the ways historians interpreted another short, violent and foundational event in modern European history – the French Revolution. The comparison of the ways we understand the Holocaust with scholars' interpretations of the French Revolution allows Confino to question some of the basic assumptions of present-day historians concerning historical narration, explanation and understanding.

Content In the aftermath of World War One, Austria faces a severe economic crisis. Unemployment. Fear of decline. However, some people argue that the problem sits deeper. For them, the country's soul is at stake. Finally, people are fed up and demand a solution. And they get what they want. They get their hero. His name is Chancellor Dr. Schwertfeger. The Aryan messiah elected by the masses offers a simple but radical solution: "Out with the Jews!" A word and a blow and soon the whole country celebrates the day the last Jew left Austria. The whole country? No, not everybody is happy. Lives are shattered. Friends, families, and lovers torn apart. And to make matters worse, the economy is not picking up. The gap left by the Jewish exodus is greater than expected. In this time of turmoil, one man is prepared to make a stand. Leo is one of the exiled and had to leave his loved one behind. Now, he is ready to fight for the love of his life and to die for his home country! Will the lovers be reunited? And what will become of Austria? About the Author and the Book With this satirical book, Hugo Bettauer was fighting the violent Anti-Semite movements of the 1920s. But little did he know! He was right and wrong at the same time. He was right, the Anti-Semites were aiming at a final solution to the so called Jewish question. Yet, we all know the course of history - exiling the Jews was not enough for the NAZIs. The converted Christian Hugo Bettauer did not live to witness this human tragedy. After a failed attempt at moving to the US, the Austrian stayed in his home country where he worked as an author and as a correspondent for American newspapers. He wrote one of the first stories about a serial killer, wrote movie scripts, and published a magazine campaigning for progressive ideas such as impunity for homosexuals and women's rights. His articles caused so much sensation that he was taken to court, his magazine was seized and Mr. Bettauer received death threats. On 20th March 1925, Hugo Bettauer was shot and killed by a member of the NAZI party. The killer was released from a psychiatric clinic only 18 months after committing the crime. What is there to learn from this story? It is more than just a piece of history. It was prophetic at the time of its release and its prophetic voice is still valid. As it seems, the demagogues, the dictators, the racists, the fascists, the haters of human rights, the terrorists and Anti-Semites are present here and now, the world over.

From My Writings And My Evenings

It is late in the evening and a philosopher wants to get words on paper. No grand project. No grand system of thought, just an attempt to get some things off his chest. Where would he turn his attention? Where would his thoughts lead him? Several catch phrases become crystallization points for his thoughts: thinking, the nature of man, the art of living, God and religion, Jews and anti-Semitism, crime and punishment, education, arts and science, language and literature, history and the state. Dagobert D. Runes put in much effort to avoid the pursuit of false ideas. In fact, the preface to From My Writings and My Evenings reads: “Hesitancy in judgment is the true mark of the thinker. Men think quite alike as they desire alike; if they were different, they could not co-exist even for a day. But most people judge by traditional or imitated judgment patterns, and snap judgments are the rule and the rulers.” How is one to avoid the pitfalls apparent in such judgments, and still contribute to one’s personal philosophy? If you are hesitant in your judgments, then what can you state that you believe to be unquestionably true? The result is a touching document of a philosopher who investigates many areas of man’s endeavors, and who seeks to characterize what he judges to be the pure, true nature of these realms.

In his most recent philosophical work, one of the modern world’s pre-eminent thinkers offers a summation of his views on a wide range of topics of first and last importance, beginning with abstract art and ending with Zionism. Culled from years of patient research and fruitful introspection, his observations are bound to stimulate, challenge, and at times force upon the reader a shock of recognition grounded on timeless but at times obscured universal truths. Dr. Runes’ word magic, now aphoristic, now cadenced and metaphorical, creates countless gems of wisdom, frequently poetic, often irresistibly quotable, always profoundly moving. A humanitarian theme evolved partly from personal tragedies permeates his lifelong search for “a life of God the Spirit and the Giver/(Of) God unbound and unencumbered/By hate or prejudice/A god to love by Deeds/Not hollow hymns and vows.”

The philosopher and founder of the Philosophical Library explores the nature of human thought, motivation, and logic. In The Art of Thinking, philosopher Dagobert D. Runes lays out his views on the relationship between logic and emotion. He argues that the human thought process is essentially alike from one person to another—and that if it was not, society would cease to function. What accounts for our diversity of views, however, is the role emotion plays in our formulation of propositions. Runes analyzes the underlying emotional motivations in the precepts, concepts, and attitudes of modern man. As he demonstrates through this series of essays, motivated thinking infiltrates, and often dominates, prevailing patterns of thought in social, religious, cultural, and even scientific organizations.

This volume is truly and doubly a “Treasury.” With its easy to read structure of brief entries in alphabetic order, it is a treasure house of observations on life and death, civilization and savagery, the universe and beyond—the Great Topics which have challenged man’s thought, whether in passionate public debate or in the lonely stillness of his nights, ever since he first raised his eyes to the stars. At the same time, this is a “personal treasury” of the intimate thoughts of an outstanding modern philosopher on these Great Topics.

An A-to-Z collection of thoughtful aphorisms and ruminations by the philosopher and founder of the Philosophical Library. In this unique dictionary, philosopher Dagobert D. Runes attempts to define the contours of human thinking and morality. In a series of terms organized alphabetically, Runes systematically sets out his own musings on topics ranging from Abhorrence and Ability to Zeal, Zen, and Zero. Each word is followed by up to several single-sentence aphorisms and occasionally a short essay. In his search for real verities and true humanity, Runes takes the reader on a thought-provoking voyage through the depths of the human mind. This is philosophy as intellectual soul-searching, unburdened by traditional manner and terminology. Sometimes baffling and frequently melancholy, it is always fascinating and inspiring.
