I remember a year ago some anon wanted to read Das Kapital. He started a thread asking what should read before the actual Das Kapital. I took note from all the tips. So I already read "The essence of christianity" by Ludwig Feuerbach and "Phenomenology of spirit" by Hegel. But problem is that Kant's "Critique of pure reason" can rarely be found in where I live. My question is can I start reading Das Kapital without Kant?
His advice is complete garbage and useless for a third world country.And if I'm asking wether it's a problem or not to read it without this implies that reaching Kant is impossible for me.
Although you only need to have read the Phenomenology to understand Kapital, your understanding of the Phenomenology is likely incomplete if you didn't read Kant first. What you should really do is read Hume's Enquiry Concerning Human Understanding, then the Critique of Pure Reason, then the Phenomenology, then the Essence of Christianity, then Grundrisse, then Das Kapital.
Lol... should have read Ricardo, Smith and a thorough macroeconomic textbook to be honest. Outside of the lordship and bondage section in phenomenology what you should have read was philosophy of right and lectures on the philosophy of history.
Furbach and the German Ideology would have been good. What the hell do you need Kant for?
Just about to read vol. 1 and so I'm also interested in the prereq reading...
Why kant and the phenomenology?
Why Hume and such?
Does it directly lead or is this just another start with the greeks meme that /lit /b's itself with
In fact you don't "need" other authors to understand one author. It is always preferable to know where shit comes from, etc. PREFERABLE.
tl;dr OP, much /lit/ is bad for your brain.
