Kształtowanie się marksowskiej koncepcji państwa
Formation of the Marxist conception of the state
Languages of publication
In this article I tried to analyze the early texts of Karl Marx to abstract from them his views on the state. The question, that interested me, was: is there a theory of the state in early Marx's writings and – if there is – what is it's relationship to the standpoint articulated in his subsequent texts? In the mature thought of Karl Marx the state was understood as a tool of class violence – an institution in the superstructure which primary function is reproduction of a social class structure and its economical infrastructure. But in some early works of this author we won't find such a definitions. I tried to show then, how Marx's understanding of the state have changed during his early period.
