This paper will try to explain the concept of alienation in the works of J.J. Rousseau as well as the works of K. Marx, with emphasis on the anthropological motivation of the two philosophers. Alienation or estrangement as a concept can not be fully explained in specific terms, yet it has been present in the field of philosophy since the time of J.J. Rousseau. First and foremost, it has been present in a political sense, through the estrangement of man's natural rights through the creation of society. But it can not be reduced to its political meaning. Alienation also appears in an economic and social sense. Man no longer views himself as he is, but as well as how he appears to others in society. Economic alienation is a theory present in the works of K. Marx, in the form of alienated labour. Man alienates himself through labour, from the product of his work, from the act of production. from himself and from others. As a consequence of economic alienation, man himself becomes a commodity in a capitalist society.
