Example text

It is certainly true that political developments under the leadership of Stalin had had an influence on the history of editions, mainly since Ryazanov had become a prominent victim of these political developments. But other historical facts must be taken into account as well. Even though it was Adoratskii in the end who published the rearranged text, it must be assumed that it was Ryazanov, long before “Stalinism,” who came up with the idea of finishing the work of Marx and Engels. Both editions, the 1926 Ryazanov and the 1932 Adoratskii, are really only interesting interpretations or literary collages of what Marx and Engels had left behind in a very messy, ambiguous, and sometimes enigmatic state.

20 / marx and engels’s “german ideology manuscripts” A short quotation from one of the manuscripts usually edited as part of “I. Feuerbach” will further underline this decisive assessment: With the presentation of reality, independent philosophy loses its medium of existence. At most a recapitulation of the most general results may take place, results which can be abstracted out of a consideration of the historical development of men. In themselves, apart from real history, these abstractions have no value whatsoever.

Rokityanskii (2001) quotes from an angry letter to the politburo in 1934 by the indignant Ryazanov, who had been exiled for three years to Saratov. In his letter, Ryazanov complained that up to the present day he had not received even a single MEGA1 volume, which he had the stalin era a feuerbach chapter / 31 “prepared, worked on and edited” and which had been published under the name of Adoratskii between 1931 and 1933 (21–2). Another example that supports the thesis that Ryazanov should be regarded as the main editor of the MEGA1 edition of The German Ideology as a single volume “book” can be found in Rolf Hecker’s 2001 article “Fortsetzung und Ende der ersten MEGA zwischen Nationalsozialismus und Stalinismus (1931–1941)” (Continuation and end of the first MEGA between national socialism and Stalinism [1931–1941]).
