TO RE-READ MARX IN THE CONTEXT OF HISTORICAL MATERIALISM

Abstract

Author(s): Arslan TOPAKKAYA

Historical materialism proposes that the history of humanity and its socio-economical development go on with a dialectical process. Culture, politics and social developments are closely related with the style of production that means economics. In this context, economics and the style of production form the sub substructure, and culture, art and philosophy upperstructure of the society. Having the means of production and capital forms the basis of class differences. History is the history of class conflicts. Dialectic as a method shows us how the history, existence and political movements develop. But, this conception of dialectic is to reverse the Hegelian view of dialectic. Marx’s views about historical materialism has brought up to date again. In this respect, there is a talk about “returning to Marx (again)”. Philosophy of Marx is still an alternative philosophy in terms of offering a solution to negative points of post-capitalism at the present day. Proponents of the doctrine of critical theory, analytical Marxists, dialectical Marxists and other Marxists are first to point out this portrait. In this context, it would be very helpful to undertake Marxism again without any prejudices and by taking into consideration of today’s conditions
