Abstract

This paper discusses the role and significance of Anti-Dühring, a famous work written by Friedrich Engels and published in 1877-1878. Through a comprehensive literature review, the authors investigate the history of Anti-Dühring’s creation and explain its origins and subsequent development. Initially planned as a series of articles against the critics of Marxism (particularly Eugen Dühring), who were spreading opposing views and causing ideological confrontation within the Social Democratic Party of Germany, the work later evolved into a holistic reflection of the entire Marxist philosophy. In this respect, our article also highlights Karl Marx’s involvement and active participation in writing Anti-Dühring. We conclude that the book clearly reflects the collective views of both Engels and Marx. Furthermore, our article examines the legal and political questions raised in the book. In our opinion, Anti-Dühring remains drastically understudied from an ideologically neutral and unbiased perspective, and, therefore, deserves more attention from contemporary scholars.
