1. No Marx without Engles by Tristram Hunt- originally published in History Today 2009. ” There is no doubt the Karl Marx is credited with the creation of communism and his partner Friedrich Engles has been consigned to the role of wealthy benefactor. However, an examination of the circumstances actually shows that, without the latter’s financial and moral support, Marx’s work might never have seen the light of day.”
2. A Tale of Two Reputations by Jared Diamond – originally published in Science News 2007. “Jared Diamond examines the life and work of two of the 19th/20th centuries, most influential thinkers- Charles Darwin and Sigmund Freud- and assesses their impact on the modern world. Although Diamond calls both “irreplaceable” we are more critical of Freud’s error than we are of Darwin’s because they have had more direct impact on our lives.”
