63 Indeed, the basis will theory and the recognition will theory are intertwined in the key passage from The German Ideology. " He followed that remark with the CHAPTER ONE 32 statement that "[t]he jus utendi and abutendi itself asserts ... the illusion that private property itself is based solely on the private will. ,,64 The former statement reflects the basis will theory, while the latter reflects a recognition will theory. As will be discussed further below, the basis and recognition theories embody various views about the formation of society and human nature, which views Marx rejected.
