Idea of Karl Marx on theory of education
Keywords:social theory, economic, political, education
The purpose of this paper that Karl Marx's social theory and class conflict cause the society to transition from one historical period to the next. This class conflict was a result of different classes having unequal access to society's material foundation. Marx's theory thus has social, political, and cultural ramifications despite being primarily economic in character. He believed that social theory ought to be based on the reality of living humans struggling to survive in a generally hostile environment. He was a social scientist and revolutionary who believed social theorists should focus on the material circumstances that affect people's lives in general and education in particular.
