Scanned Text: Ernst Bloch’s Geist der Utopie

The Hathi Trust Digital Library has made available a full-view image of the first edition of Ernst Bloch’s Geist der Utopie. Bloch was to publish a revised edition in 1923, but the one available here is the original 1918 version. A partial English translation of the book’s final section, “Karl Marx, Death, and the Apocalypse,” appeared in one of the Herder and Herder Bloch compilations of the 1970s (Man On His Own), but, incredibly, it took until 2000 for a complete English translation (by Anthony A. Nassar) to appear.
