THE THEORY OF DIALECTICAL MATERIALISM IN MARXIST THEORIES

VIKAS YADAV

Abstract

Dialectical materialism, apart from historical materialism, is an understanding that should actually be called the philosophy of Marxism. It is a new scientific view of seeing the world. In fact, the major problem of Marx and Engels was to see scientifically which things in the society are concrete reality. To know this reality, Marx adopted a purely scientific approach. The central principle of Marx's dialectical materialism is seen equally in nature, society and ideology. Applying the philosophy of its philosophy to Marx history, he asserts that both Ideas and Matter are different. And if these are seen carefully, these two are not only different but also mutually opposed to each other. But when ideas and Matter are seen as their unity, then Matter is the primary and basic element. Therefore, if a ideology can exist due to ideology, Marx says it is not possible. But it is quite possible that even if we are not in ideas, we get the existence of Matter in the society. This argument means that substance is essential, primary and fundamental in the analysis of the reality of the world.
