 Karl Kautsky
Karl Kautsky has been rightly considered the successor of Engels in the intellectual leadership of the Marxian School.
Kautsky was the compiler and editor of Karl Marx's Theories of Surplus Value (1905-10), the founder of Die Neue Zeit and a political leader of the German Social Democrats.
As such, Kautsky served as the principal opponent of Eduard Bernstein's "revisionist" interpretation of Marx (1899), as a protagonist during the Socialist Calculation debate (1907), as well as an arbitrator during the intra-Marxian debate on the theory of crisis and the debate on imperialism.

 Karl Korsch's Marxism
Kautsky was a figure of enormous stature, close to Frederick Engels, he was given the responsibility of publishing many of Marx's original manuscripts after Engels' death.
Karl Korsch was born in 1886 in Tostedt, near Hamburg in Germany.
If Kautsky's Marxism was the theoretical expression of a reformist compromise in the interests of the bureaucratic structures of the SPD; Karl Korsch's Marxism fitted the perspective of an activist at the moment of capitalism's crisis, it tied Marxist theory to the class struggle and to the need for revolution.

 The "Renegade" Kautsky and his Disciple Lenin. | libcom.org
Part of the interest in discussing Kautsky's article was the fact that Lenin's much better known article The Three Sources and Three Component Parts of Marxism was based on it, and it therefore illuminated the relationship between Kautsky's and Lenin's conceptions of marxism and socialism.
Kautsky was unquestionably the major thinker of the Second International and his party, the German Social Democratic Party, the most powerful.
Kautsky, the guardian of orthodoxy, was almost universally regarded as the most knowledgeable expert on the work of Marx and Engels and their privileged interpreter.

 Karl Kautsky, The Materialist Conception of History
Kautsky was the literary legatee of Marx and Engels, and the great systematiser of their work.
Kautsky's negative attitude to Freud, for example (pp.58, 93, 106-7, 511), stands in marked contrast to Trotsky in Culture and Socialism, and readers of Lenin's Materialism and Empirio-criticism will be interested to learn that Kautsky placed far more value on Mach's work than Lenin did (p.31).
Kautsky's book was published in 1927, in the middle of the palmy days of the `Roaring Twenties' and the Stresemann Era, and its trouble-free, evolutionary, unproblematic conception of gradual upward human progress seemed to be a reasonable assumption at the time.

 MARXIAN ECONOMICS
Soon after the death of Karl Marx, a Marxian school of economics emerged under the leadership of Marx's inner circle of companions and co-writers, notably Friedrich Engels and Karl Kautsky, both of whom were German.
For instance, Karl Kautsky first replied that there was no theory of breakdown in Marx's work at all, and then, in 1902, Kautsky acknowledged there was a theory of "chronic depression" -- not a big-bang breakdown, but rather one that stressed the increasing severity of recurrent crises.
In Austria, Karl Renner became Chancellor (later President), while Otto Bauer served as secretary of state for foreign affairs (their minister of finance was, once again, Joseph Schumpeter, on whose unlucky shoulders the blame for the ensuing hyperinflation was placed).

 Gary P Steenson
Karl Kautsky (1854-1938) was the most important of the many hundreds of people who tried their hands at theory for German social democracy.
Kautsky and other critics of Bernstein were on the firmest ground when they rejected his call for the expansion of the party beyond the industrial working class.
Anticipating Kautsky's later conclusions, she contended rather that what was needed was for Bernstein to recognize finally that in theory and practice he was not a socialist, but a petty-bourgeois radical.

 Of renegades and united secretariats: Some historical reflections
Condemning the dissolution of the Constituent Assembly by the Soviets, he bowed to the fetishes of bourgeois parliamentarism and joined the camp of the democratic counterrevolution sponsored by the white supremacist leader of American imperialism, the Democratic President Woodroow Wilson.
Kautsky wrote three books in defence of the democratic counterrevolution, the first two of which were answered by Lenin and Trotsky.
Lenin's The Proletarian Revolution and the Renegade Kautsky (1918) was a reply to Kautsky's The Dictatorship of the Proletariat (1918), and Trotsky's Terrorism and Communism: A Reply to Karl Kautsky (1920) was written in response to Kautsky's Terrorism and Communism: A Contribution to the Natural History of Revolution (1919).

 MIA - Sezione italiana: Enciclopedia Marxista
In primavera Kautsky ricevette da Höchberg l'incarico di recarsi a Londra, dove avrebbe poi fatto conoscenza di Marx ed Engels.
Kautsky successivamente scrisse una serie di lavori di stampo marxista, ma anche nei suoi migliori scritti fece vari e rilevanti errori; egli non seppe mai usare con metodo il materialismo dialettico e fu sempre lontano dal comprendere e dall'adottare una posizione marxista rivoluzionaria sulla questione della dittatura del proletariato.
Negli anni della prima grande guerra imperialista Kautsky fu pacifista, ma dopo la Rivoluzione d'Ottobre si schierò con violenza contro il Marxismo-Leninismo e divenne un nemico giurato della rivoluzione proletaria predicando l'intervento armato contro la Russia dei Soviet.

 Karl Korsch
Respected by all wings of the Socialist International, it was Kautsky who was seen to have defended Marxism against the attacks of the revisionists, notably Eduard Bernstein, who campaigned for the German Social Democratic Party to convert itself into an explicitly reformist organisation.
With all their orthodox obsession with the abstract letter of Marxist theory [even Bernstein’s opponents, Kautsky and the orthodox Marxists within the Second International] were unable to preserve its original revolutionary character.
