Concept Paper 5
Marx?s Economic Determinism ??It follows from this that a certain mode of production, or industrial
stage, is always combined with a certain mode of co-operation, or
social stage, and this mode of co-operation is itself a ?productive
force.? Further, that the multitude of productive forces accessible to
men determines the nature of society, hence, that the ?history of
humanity? must always be studied and treated in relation to the
history of industry and exchange?Thus it is quite obvious from the
start that there exists a materialistic connection of men with one
another, which is determined by their needs and their mode of
production, and which is as old as men themselves. This connection
is ever taking on new forms, and thus presents a ?history?
independently of the existence of any political or religious nonsense
which in addition may hold men together.?
(From Karl Marx and Frederick Engles, The German Ideology, in
Farganis, James, Readings in Social Theory, pg. 51)
Explain carefully, in your own words, what is the assumption about
human societies that Marx outlined above.
Would you say that Marx?s idea is comparable or not comparable to
the role of ?the division of labor? in society according to Durkheim?
Select any society of the world, contemporary or not very recent, (for
example, Chinese, Canadian, American, Russian, Swedish, Saudi
Arabian, or Victorian England, Early Roman, Egyptian society, etc.)
and demonstrate by giving specific examples, how the ?multitude of
productive forces?determines the nature of society.?
