Marx’s corpus of texts is conceived mainly as critique: critique of religion, critique of philosophy, critique of politics, critique of political economy, etc. However, among the targets of Marx’s critique the notions of ‘the human’ and ‘humanism’ have an ambiguous status. A substantial humanism has been attributed to his work starting with the publication (in 1932) of the Economic and Philosophical Manuscripts of 1844, in which Marx develops a theory of alienation.

Silence (tacere or Schweigen) has been considered by Franz Rosenzweig among others as a subversive act or defiant stance of the tragic hero against overwhelming power mechanisms of necessity, i.e., totalization and universality. It has also, however, been regarded as an epiphenomenon (or a result) of marginalization and oppression by postcolonial theorists. The latters’ understanding marks silence as an end, a potential violent effect of the logics of exclusion and marginalization by “signifying machines”.
