Hide Profile

Ferdinand Lassalle was a German "scientific" socialist who took part in the German Revolutions of 1848, founded the Democratic Socialist Party, and In 1862 proposed a theory (Lassalleanism) in opposition to Marxism. Lassalle believed that the proletariat represented community, solidarity of interest, and reciprocity of interest. He argued, therefore, that the cause of the workers is the cause of humanity; when the proletariat gains political supremacy, a higher degree of morality, culture, and science results, furthering civilization.
