Some years ago my dad Alan McEachran – a teacher of Philosophy for over 25 years – wrote a few students guides to classic texts. His precis of The German Ideology in modern English is perfect as a primer to the text, and I’ve published it here for posterity and in the hope that students of this important text might find it useful.

Combining morality, economics and politics, Jeffry Sachs discusses our global future and humanity’s survival.
This might be a bit beyond sixth-form students – it may be a bit beyond you or I, for that matter – but what reason for teaching students how to think critically can there be that is more important than the hope that they can think critically about these issues?
It is compelling to listen someone with such a depth of understanding of our global state of affairs to give an optimistic view of the future.
