By Richard Schacht

First released in 1970, unique blurb:


‘Alienation’ is the catchword of our time. it's been utilized to every little thing from the recent politics to the anti-heroes of today’s motion pictures. yet what does it mean to assert that somebody is alienated? Is alienation a frame of mind, or a dating? If sleek guy is certainly alienated, is it from his paintings, his executive, his society, or himself – or from all of those?


Richard Schacht, during this clever research, will get to the foundation of those questions. studying the concept that of alienation within the works of Hegel and Marx, he supplies a transparent account of the origins of the fashionable utilization of the time period. one of several insights to be won from this research is a transparent realizing of Hegel’s impression on Marx during this most vital quarter. Mr Schacht is going directly to talk about the concept that of alienation in fresh philosophical and sociological literature, quite within the writings of Erich Fromm. right here he reveals loads of confusion, which has led to a chain of just about universally unquestioned misconceptions.


This, then, is a publication for we all who use – and mis-use – the time period ‘alienation’, and who're attracted to the techniques it brings to brain. The arguments of Professor Walter Kaufmann’s introductory essay offer an invaluable historical past for Mr Schacht’s research. during this essay, Professor Kaufmann states that ‘henceforth no one may still write approximately alienation with no first examining Schacht’s book.’
