Alienation and Social es The key quote that captures the meaning of this reading is “the worker is related to his labor as to an alien object” (Grusky, 2008, p. 87).

This alienation of worker to his product means that his labor becomes an object that assumes an eternal existence, independently outside him. It also means that his products become alien to him standing opposed to him like an autonomous power (Marx,...

The payment for labour should reflect the value of the products or services they produce (Buchholz, 2007).

He is the founder of modern “scientific” socialism, a view which presents the idea that in society no property should be held privately. Karl Hienrich Marx was born in Trier, Rhenish Prussia (modern day Germany) on May 5th 1818. His father Heinrich Marx was a lawyer by profession and the descendant of a long line of Rabbis. His mother, Henriette Presburg Marx, had a very similar genealogy as well.

In the absence of offering any explicit moral code himself, Marx's claims are measurable along common modes of moral belief: deontology, utilitarianism, and virtue ethics. Arguably, the fact that Marx's writings remain largely bereft of explicit moral theories has been, historically, one reason why his conclusions are so appealing. That is, we cannot successfully attack Marx's philosophy from potentially debatable ethical foundations. Marx holds that human knowledge automatically begins from our sensations...

He believed that what is produced, how it is produced, and how it is exchanged determine the diversity in people’s wealth, power, and social status (Elwell).
