Traces the history of Vico's idea that "the social world is the work of man." Traces this revolutionary view of society through Michelet, Taine, Renan and Anatole France; through the early socialists, Saint-Simon, Babeuf, Fourier, Owen and the American socialists; and through the further development of their ideas in Marx and Engels. The final chapters deal with Lenin and Trotsky and the origins of the Russian Revolution itself. Includes an Index.
