Grundrisse occupies a pivotal place in Marx's career, it also offers a unique picture of his methods of work. The work consists of seven notebooks on capital and on money. Drafted during the winter of 1857-8, Marx first explored the themes and thesis that dominate his later writings. It is here that Marx sets out his own version of Hegel's Dialectics, developed his mature views on labour, surplus value and profit and offered many fresh insights into alienation, automation, the restrictions of personality and recurrent economic crises produced by capitalism.
