German Philosopher and Economist. Considered with Karl Marx, the founder of the philosophical movement known as the Hegelian Left. This deviation of Hegelian rationalism is based on two fundamental concepts such as the Dialectical Materialism and the Historical Materialism. He was the author of "Manifest der Partei Kommunistischen", considered the most popular work of international socialism, and in which appears the concept of "Permanent Revolution". He published numerous essays, including "Die Lage der arbeitenden Klasse in England", "Grundsätze des Kommunismus", "Revolution in Deutschland und Konterrevolution" and "Ludwig Feuerbach und der deutschen klassischen Ausgang der Philosophie.
