Political Theory and Philosophy

Marxism – Theory and Philosophy – An Introduction

Marxism is a theory, and an ideology, that combines economic, social and political change resulting in a fair and equal society (i.e. communism). Formulated and pioneered by Karl Marx and Freidrich Engels, marxism focuses on a materialist interpretation of history, a dialectical view of social change, and the development and eventual collapse of capitalism.
