Abstract

Paul Lafargue (1842-1911), the son-in-law and disciple of Karl Marx, helped to found the first French collectivist party. His role is described in some detail as is his position of superiority in the socialist movement, thanks to his close ties to Marx and Engels. However, it was this same sense of superiority that contributed to the reductionism and sectarianism that came to characterize the French Marxist parties.
