On Historical Materialism

Author: Franz Mehring

ISBN: 9781 898231 38 7

The materialist study of history is subject to the very laws of historical motion that it itself lays down. Mehring insists the life work of Marx and Engels is based throughout on historical materialism. Quoting Marx 'It is not the consciousness of men that determines their existence, but their social existence that determines their consciousness.'
