      Marx's communist society is in the anomalous position of being, at one and the same time, the most famous of utopias and among the least known. And, while no one disputes the importance of Marx's vision of communism to Marxism, the vision itself remains clouded and unclear. Marxist historiography is a current of historical interpretation based on 'dialectical materialism'; a study of history based 1) on the study of the material world and 2) through dialectical relationships between contradictory forces within a given context.

        Off the top of my head, I recall that John Tosh's The Pursuit of History has a decent section on Marxist historiography. For a work that I've been reading that embraces that set of parentheses (although the author is happy enough to note its faults), Haldon's Byzantium in the Seventh Century is a good look at how modern Marxist history works. South African society is riddled with contradictions. Everywhere one looks today the organic crisis of capitalism is having a devastating impact on the lives of millions of working people. On the one hand, nearly 8 million people of working age are unemployed in the country. On the other hand, the gap between rich and poor is wider than its was under Apartheid.

Since the eighteenth century, few schools of historical thought have exerted a more lasting impact than Marxism, and this impact extends far beyond the Western world within which it is most commonly analysed.

The Historiography of Marxist Thought The study of Karl Marx and his philosophies has fascinated political, social and economic historians for most of the past century. Hundreds, if not thousands, of scholars have dedicated their professional life to understanding Marx and Marxism.

MARXIST HISTORIOGRAPHY. CHAPTER – IV. MARXIST HISTORIOGRAPHY. Another important trend of historiography is the Marxist philosophy of understanding history. This new development began to emerge in the second decade of 20thcentury due.

Marxism has slowly declined in recent literature on the economic and social history of the ancient world. If one happens to run into the name of Marx or the term Marxism, it is generally within the context of polemical remark.

In spite of recurrent attempts to resuscitate it as an ideal foil for anti-Communist polemic, Marxism made its final exit from the field of ancient historical studies in.

Once liberated from both teleology and Eurocentric views – its secret tendencies from the time of its transformation into a “science” – Marxist historiography could reinvent itself and redefine its goal, which does not consist in the “application” of a preformed theory but, according to E.

The Marxist school of historiography was significant in the second half of the 20 th century. They believe in universal laws and stages of history.

Stages of History. The Marxist, further, believe that all the societies pass through at least five stages of history. These stages were defined by Karl Marx and F. Engels as − Primitive Communism. Marxist text-books often suggest that the 'mode of production', but especially the 'forces of production', represent the 'material' base, whereas ideas form a separate superstructure seated upon it.

Marxism, a body of doctrine developed by Karl Marx and, to a lesser extent, by Friedrich Engels in the midth century. It originally consisted of three related ideas: a philosophical anthropology, a theory of history, and an economic and political is also Marxism as it has been understood and practiced by the various socialist movements, particularly before   Karl Marx () was a German philosopher and economist who became a social revolutionary as co-author of "The Communist Manifesto.".

This chapter discusses Marxist historiography in the present times. In the interpretation of the world nowadays, there has been a rise in the so-called anti-Rankean reaction in history, of which Marxism is an important but not always fully acknowledged element.

This movement challenged the positivist belief that the objective structure of reality was self-explanatory, and that all that was. Marxist historiography, that is, the writing of Marxist history in line with the given historiographical principles, is often seen as a tool.

Its aim is to bring those oppressed by history to self-consciousness, and to arm them with tactics and strategies from history: it is both a historical and a liberatory project.

Marxist evolution shapes its view of history based on the belief that humanity, as well as other living things, is.
