Dr. Rey Ty’s
Engels on the Role of Intellectuals
• Engels addressing the
International Congress of
Socialist Students in 1893:
“May your efforts succeed in
fostering among the students
awareness of the fact that it is
precisely from their ranks that
the intellectual proletariat
should go forth, that proletariat
which is called upon to play an
important role in the coming
revolution, side by side and in
the midst of other brothers, the
manual workers.” In Marx &
Engels, Werke, Bd. 22, S. 415.
