See for yourself the humble abode of one of the greatest minds in human history. Karl Marx moved to the house on Dean Street in 1851. There he completed an ambitious essay entitled "Grundrisse" and suffered the death of his son from tuberculosis all while he struggled to earn enough money to support his family. The house may be tidier now, but Marx was far from a meticulous housekeeper. A friend described his living quarters as "dirty, everything covered with dust; it is dangerous to sit down."
