The Marxists Internet Archive has launched an Ernst Bloch section. The first text to appear there is the chapter on Marx’s Theses on Feuerbach from Vol 1 of Bloch’s The Principle of Hope. This excerpt appears to be the Plaice-Plaice-Knight translation of the entire work, which was published in Britain in 1986. A US edition of this translation was published by MIT Press in 1995. The original, incredibly, was first published in East Germany in 1954, the year after a workers’ revolt shook the entire country. To our knowledge, Bloch—at least in public a supporter of the Ulbricht regime—refrained from commenting on the event.
The Theses on Feuerbach chapter is taken from Part Two of Volume 1, a section titled “Anticipatory Consciousness.”
An alternate translation of this section (by John Maxwell) was published by Herder and Herder in the U.S. in 1971 in On Karl Marx, a work made up of excerpts from The Principle of Hope.
