Review of 'Socialism, utopian and scientific' on 'Goodreads'

5 stars

Throughout this year I've finally taken the plunge into reading Marxist theory and after reading some introductory and guided texts I decided to tackle this short read from Engels himself as it's been recommended to me as very understandable and approachable, as it's somewhat of a short primer on the principles of scientific socialism. I can definitely agree with that, reading this I've felt both that there's hope for me yet to attain enough understanding on subjects such as dialectics and historical materialism to follow a basic conversation on such things eventually (baby steps), and that I have yet much to learn. Still this is a great read, incredibly relevant and resonating despite having been published more than 140 years ago, and a very easy recommendation.
