Historical Materialism: General Theory of History
Karl Marx was born in , at Treves in Germany. Treves had been influenced by the French during the revolutionary and Napoleonic era hence, it was much cosmopolitan than most parts of Germany.
Karl Marx married a gentile aristocrat. At the University he was influenced by Hegelianism. He also tried journalism but the Rhenische Zeitung 1 , a radical publication was suppressed by the authorities. In , he went to France to study socialism.
There, he met Engels, the manager of a factory in Manchester. From him, he came to know of English labor conditions and English economics. After taking part in the French and German revolutions of , he sought refuge in England in from where he wrote and amassed knowledge.
The stimulus to his work was the hope of a social revolution in his lifetime or in future. Unlike British classical economics who aimed at the welfare of the capitalists, Marx worked to represent the interest of the wage earner.
This is best represented in the Communist Manifesto of Before delving into dialectical materialism and historical dialectics as espoused by Karl Marx, it is important to explain something about the Hegelian dialectic method.
This process is essential to the understanding of the result. Each later stage of the dialectic contains all the earlier stages. None is wholly 4 superseded, but is given its proper place as a moment in the whole. It is therefore impossible to reach the truth except by going through all the steps of the dialectic. For Marx, Hegelian philosophies of history and Hegelian theory of self-consciousness were inextricable.
From this conception, Marx derived his Theory of history. Karl Marx is a reviver of materialism giving it a new interpretation and a new connection with human history. But what is dialectical materialism? To understand this, it is important to first of all define dialectic and also materialism.
Dialectic 8 in philosophy is the art of discovering and telling truths in discussion and logical argument. Materialism 9 on the other hand is the theory or belief that only material things exist. Marx called himself a materialist. In his view, all sensation or perception is an interaction between subject and object; the bare object, apart from the activity of the percipient, is a mere raw material, which is transformed in the process of being known. Knowledge in the old sense of passive contemplation is an unreal abstraction; the process that really takes place is one of handling things.
Dialectical materialism is an abstraction of general laws of change that takes place in the physical world of nature. It postulates that the perpetual change occurring among natural phenomena follows certain designed scientific laws which operate on a linear pattern in the form of thesis, then antithesis to form a synthesis which then becomes a new thesis. This philosophy borrowed from Hegel, goes that, contradictory things in nature, change nature.
Hegel had argued that in contradictions in nature, man strives to higher stages of purity. Therefore, in material nature, before a new thesis is formed, the old must be destroyed. The synthesis thus formed, is the new thesis.
In interpreting Marx, the process which philosophers have called the pursuit of knowledge is not constant. Subject and object, knower and the thing known, are in a continual process of mutual adaptation. Marx would contend that we only notice things as part of the process of acting with reference to them, and any theory which leaves out action is a misleading abstraction. In the first contradiction, there is the exchange of or interaction between man and nature in the social aspect of labor.
For example, new material results from two old materials. In the second contradiction, it starts with appearance of contradiction between new productive forces and old productive forces. The third contradiction results from contradiction between new product relations and the old superstructure. Add to cart. Cit , Pg. Sign in to write a comment. Read the ebook. Karl Marx, Carl G.
