Tidings from Hazel Kahan

“‘From each according to ability; To each according to need,’ is a phrase derived from where?” asks Luc Bovens, Professor, University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, my guest on this month’s Tidings. I’d been puzzled by what seemed not only to escalate Cold War-era rejection of Marx’s ideas but also to weaponize rather kind, humanitarian thinking into a surefire way to unseat a political opponent or at least cast serious doubts on another’s civic worthiness. I had not expected the explanation to lie in the Bible.

Collaborating with scholar Adrien Lutz, Professor Bovens explains that the words did not in fact originate with Karl Marx, who popularized them in his 1875 Critique of the Gotha Program, but in France as early as 1829, and later in 1845 and 1848, with Christians who borrowed the phrases and their variants from the French Bible and, which as my guest illustrates, are scattered through the books of the New Testament. It turns out that Karl Marx not only came late to the Marxism slogan but did so on the shoulders of 19th century Christian philosophers and the Bible!
