3 KARL'S LETTER TO HIS FATHER. ADVANCE TO THE YOUNG HEGELIANS. THE "WHAT IS" AND "WHAT OUGHT TO BE" PROBLEM AND HEGEL'S IDEALIST DIALECTICS The most important document of this period in Marx's intellectual development is the letter to his. father of November 1 0 , 1 837. Unfortunately, no other letters of his relating to the period have come down to us. That is why this unique document should be analysed as thoroughly as possible. In the opening lines of his letter, he says that some moments in a man's life are like turning points.

Marx believed that the idea of the atom's random declination was the most important aspect of the atomistics of Epicurus: "In it is expressed the atom's negation of all motion and relation by which it is determined as a particular mode of being by another being" ( 1, l ; 5 1). In other words, this is a concretisation of the ancient conception of the atom through the assumption of an inherent elementary and spontaneous motion which is called its law. The atom's fall in a straight line, which is inherent in all bodies, cannot be an expression of the specific nature of this elementary particle.

However, it would be wrong to assume that in his dissertation Marx dealt with the meaningful issues in German political life and the philosophical struggle only to the extent to which it went beyond the framework of his thesis. The point is that Marx took an interest in the philosophy of Epicurus largely because he saw it as a naive a pproach to the social problems which the outstanding minds of the new period were seeking to solve. Marx, says M. Lifshits, "regards the natural-philosophical doctrine of the atom as a reflection of the principle of the private individual and independent political citizen, a principle solemnly proclaimed by the French Revolution.
