Class Consciousness And False Consciousness

Definition: Karl Marx defined class consciousness as a social condition in which members of a social class, and in particular the working class, are actively aware of themselves as a class. False consciousness is a lack of such awareness, resulting in a distorted perception of the reality of class and its consequences.
