An early (1935) article and analysis of Marx's 1844 Paris Manuscripts. However, what makes it particularly interesting is that Macmurray only had access to Landshut and Mayer's version in German..."Der Historische Materialismus"...as he states, there was no English translation of the Manuscripts at that time...and wouldn't be until Fromm's complete translation in 1961. However, Fromm makes mention of an earlier translation in English which was made in Russia and was on sale in England in 1959. He also mentions a partial translation in English in Raya Dunayevskaya's MARXISM AND FREEDOM (Bookman Associates, New York, 1958). Regardless, Macmurrary's insight into Marx's philosophy is remarkable for the time...and despite Macmurray's admission that he was a "...sympathetic student who does not whole-heartedly accept the final conclusion..."
