Sample text

Here he unambiguously described the state of the edited text of The German Ideology, shortly after Ryazanov had had to leave the institute. According to Czóbel (1997), the text was completely set and 75 percent of it had already been sent out to the printer for corrections. The apparatus criticus itself was not finished at this stage, but was mostly prepared on file cards. The only thing missing was an introduction (136–7). The question for us now is: to what extent did Adoratskii add or change anything later on?

After all, there is no historical evidence that Marx and Engels actually wanted to finish their critique of Feuerbach in particular after December 1846, when Marx began writing his work Misère de la philosophie: Réponse à la philosophie de la misère de M. Proudhon (The Poverty of Philosophy: Reply to the Philosophy of Poverty by M. Proudhon). ” This is where Marx (1996b: 161), as one of the authors, clearly states that they had deliberately “abandoned the manuscripts . . all the more willingly” since they had accomplished their “main purpose,” which was self-clarification.

Here, Hecker (2001: 182) clearly states that the edition of The German Ideology, which had been published as an MEGA1 volume in 1932, was “mostly” [weitgehend] prepared under Ryazanov, but later on published by Adoratskii. The whole political controversy over who is accountable for the 1932 MEGA1 edition gets even more intense when the editorial influence that Ryazanov might have had on the socalled chapter “I. Feuerbach” is being considered. Even the most superficial comparison between the 1926 Marx-Engels-Archiv edition and the 1932 MEGA1 edition reveals that there are grave differences in the way the text has been arranged.
