Materialist theory was modified and many variations were made to the original theory which was of Karl Marx. However the original theory known as historical materialism or the materialist conception of history talks about the events in a society which are based on the dialectic situations which are between two opposing forces or the classes of the society. For Marx the concept of dialectic was important and effective however he discarded the Hegel’s concept which was based on idealism. He believed in the existence of the real world. Marx did not believe or agree with the ideologies presented by the society as for him they were a hindrance in the clear and vivid picture of the material conditions of the society.

The mode of production was important and according to Marx societies changes their mode of production and he made a statement about the European society which adapted the capitalist production format moving ahead of the feudal production method.
