...Estranged Labor Introduction Karl Marx's Theory of Alienation gives us an idea about the dehumanizing effects of capitalism that affects the worker in the society. Marx's idea of worker alienation pertains to the worker being deprived of all his fundamental human qualities as a result of the production process. As the society develops, people become alienated and estranged from his work, his being, and his society. In his essay “Estranged Labor” from the Economic and Philosophical Manuscripts of 1844, Marx saw how the whole society must falls apart into two classes — property owners and propertyless workers. As a writer and journalist struggling to make a living, his... ? here] A Stranger to Marx’s...

...Labor and The Operation of Capital: Is That All? [ID In Marxist theory, the worker is alienated from themselves due to the operation of the class struggle (Novack and Mandel, 1972). “So much does the labor's realization appear as loss of realization that the worker loses realization to the point of starving to death. So much does objectification appear as loss of the object that the worker is robbed of the objects most necessary not only for his life but for his work. Indeed, labor itself becomes an object which he can obtain only with the greatest effort and with the most irregular interruptions.

Borrowing ideas from Adam Smith, Marx argued that the importance of a commodity manifests in its ability to satisfy specific human needs, which he calls “use value.” He distinguishes this with “exchange value,” the amount of another commodity that can be exchanged at any given time. Marx explains that every commodity has value, which portrays its production cost and overall labor-time required to produce it (Marx...
