‘If in this book harsh words are spoken about some of the greatest among the intellectual leaders of mankind, my motive is not, I hope, to belittle them. It springs rather from my conviction that, if our civilization is to survive, we must break with the habit of deference to great men.’ - Karl Popper, from the Preface Written in political exile during the Second World War and first published in two volumes in 1945, Karl Popper’s The Open Society and Its Enemies is one of the most influential books of all time. Hailed by Bertrand Russell as a ‘vigorous and profound defence of democracy’, its now legendary attack on the philosophies of Plato, Hegel and Marx exposed the dangers inherent in centrally planned political systems and through underground editions become an inspiration to lovers of freedom living under communism in Eastern Europe. Popper’s highly accessible style, his erudite and lucid explanations of the thoughts of great philosophers and the recent resurgence of totalitarian regimes around the world are just three of the reasons for the enduring popularity of The Open Society and Its Enemies and why it demands to be read today and in years to come.

One of the most important books of the twentieth century, Karl Popper's The Open Society and Its Enemies is an uncompromising defense of liberal democracy and a powerful attack on the intellectual origins of totalitarianism. Popper was born in 1902 to a Viennese family of Jewish origin. He taught in Austria until 1937, when he emigrated to New Zealand in anticipation of the Nazi annexation of Austria the following year, and he settled in England in 1949. Before the annexation, Popper had written mainly about the philosophy of science, but from 1938 until the end of the Second World War he focused his energies on political philosophy, seeking to diagnose the intellectual origins of German and Soviet totalitarianism. The Open Society and Its Enemies was the result. An immediate sensation when it was first published in two volumes in 1945, Popper's monumental achievement has attained legendary status on both the Left and Right and is credited with inspiring anticommunist dissidents during the Cold War. Arguing that the spirit of free, critical inquiry that governs scientific investigation should also apply to politics, Popper traces the roots of an opposite, authoritarian tendency to a tradition represented by Plato, Marx, and Hegel. In a substantial new introduction written for this edition, acclaimed political philosopher Alan Ryan puts Popper's landmark work in biographical, intellectual, and historical context. Also included is a personal essay by eminent art historian E. H. Gombrich, in which he recounts the story of the book's eventual publication despite numerous rejections and wartime deprivations.

»Eine profunde Neubewertung von Marx und eine fesselnde Lektüre«, so urteilt Bestseller-Autor Christopher Clark über Gareth Stedman Jones‘ hochgelobte Studie »Karl Marx: Die Biographie«. Denn Karl Marx war kein Marxist – zum Marxisten haben ihn andere gemacht. Indem Gareth Stedman Jones Leben und Werk von Marx konsequent aus ihrem Kontext im 19. Jahrhundert beschreibt, gelingt ihm eine faszinierende neue Deutung dieses epochemachenden Denkers. Endlich verstehen wir Marx‘ Entwicklung aus seiner Zeit heraus und wie er die Gedanken von Kant, Hegel, Feuerbach, Ricardo und anderen zu neuen Ideen schmiedete. Und wir verstehen Marx‘ grundlegende Begriffe wie z.B. »Mehrwert«, »Kapital« »Entfremdung«, »Ausbeutung«, »Proletarier«, »Revolution« usw. In einer Epoche des industriellen und politischen Umbruchs erscheint Marx als Zeitgenosse, der versucht, Antworten auf die neuen Herausforderungen zu finden. Antworten, von denen er nicht ahnen konnte, wie sehr sie die Welt verändern würden. »Eine profunde Neubewertung von Marx und eine fesselnde Lektüre.« Christopher Clark

Karl Popper behandelt und kritisiert in diesem Buch zwar vordergründig den Historizismus, das heißt die Lehre, daß es Gesetze der historischen Entwicklung gibt, in seinen antinaturalistischen und pronaturalistischen Ausprägungen. Im Grunde ist das Buch aber viel breiter angelegt. Es ist die erkenntnisfördernde Übertragung von Karl Poppers Wissenschaftslehre auf Politik, Soziologie und Geschichte, für deren Problemstellungen es neue überraschende Lösungen aufzeigt. Jeder, der an politischen, soziologischen und historischen Fragestellungen interessiert ist, wird deshalb aus diesem Buch Anregungen und Lösungsvorschläge entnehmen können, die heute noch so aktuell sind wie vor 50 Jahren. Das Buch ist ein Standardwerk der Anwendung wissenschaftlicher Theorien auf die konkrete Praxis.
