Marxian education sought

I'm interested in (the early) Marx's claim that man is a "species-being" (Gattungswesen). Is there someone out there who can help me understand this?

See here:

Man is a species-being [20], not only because he practically and theoretically makes the species – both his own and those of other things – his object, but also – and this is simply another way of saying the same thing – because he looks upon himself as the present, living species, because he looks upon himself as a universal and therefore free being.

& passim
