Good essay a little confusing though I got an A A- In Karl Marxs early writing on estranged labor there is a clear and prevailing focus on the plight of the laborer Marxs writing on estranged labor is an attempt to draw a stark distinction between property owners and workers In the writing Marx argues that the worker becomes estranged from his labor because he is not the recipient of the product he creates As a result labor is objectified that is labor becomes the object of mans existence As labor is objectified man becomes disillusioned and enslaved Marx argues that man becomes to be viewed as a commodity worth only the labor he creates and man is further reduced to a subsisting animal void of any capacity of freedom except the will to labor For Marx this all leads to the emergence of private property the enemy of the proletariat In fact Marxs writing on estranged labor is a repudiation of private property- a warning of how private property enslaves the worker This writing on estranged labor is an obvious point of basis for Marxs Communist Manifesto The purpose of this paper is to view Marxs concept of alienation estranged labor and how it limits freedom For Marx mans freedom is relinquished or in fact wrested from his true nature once he becomes a laborer This process is thoroughly explained throughout Estranged Labor This study will reveal this process and argue its validity Appendant to this study on alienation there will be a micro-study which will attempt to ascertain Marxs view of freedom ie positive or negative The study on alienation in conjunction with the micro-study on Marxs view of freedom will help not only reveal why Marx feels labor limits mans freedom but it will also identify exactly what kind of freedom is being limited Karl Marx identifies estranged labor as labor alien to man Marx
